Latino Community CU film at Chicago film festival
CHICAGO (4/14/08)--“Los Suenos de Angelica” (“Angelica’s Dreams”), the first Latino feature-length independent film made in North Carolina, was screened Saturday at Chicago’s Latino Film Festival. “Angelica’s Dreams” is the film version of Latino Community CU’s (LCCU) three-part dramatic mini-series dedicated to financial education, with a special emphasis on home- buying education, said the North Carolina Credit Union League (Weekly Update April 7). The film is part of LCCU’s Home Buyer Education (HBE) program, which contains a guide and a companion video series. LCCU will provide 25,000 copies of the guide and 1,200 copies of the video to be used nationwide by other credit unions, community centers and other organizations. “We recognize that the overwhelming majority of our more than 50,000 members has little or no experience with financial services, and therefore, need extensive financial education to integrate into the mainstream U.S. financial system,” said Angel Romero, LCCU director of marketing and communications. “Financial literacy is a fundamental part of LCCU’s mission,” he added. “All of our products are designed to promote financial education in the community, as well as meet the unique needs of members. Using video to educate our members and the community in general is a fabulous tool to spread our message.” LCCU produced “Angelica’s Dreams” with a grant from the Community Development Financial Institution Fund, a program of the U.S. Treasury Department.
