Peruvian Professor Wins Prestigious Award

Rossana (Rocca) Diaz, professor of Advanced Academic Spanish and Peruvian Culture for our Peru program, has won a prestigious national award for her movie project.

Rocca won the award from Peru's National Council for Movies (CONACINE) for the production of her first movie "Viaje a Tombuctu." Another Peruvian film, "Milk of Sorrow," which was nominated for an Oscar in 2010, won this award when it was a project in 2008.
