"Refugees in Utah" film shown at BYU May 18

Brigham Young University’s David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies will host a screening of the film “Refugees in Utah” by filmmaker Ingrid Amado Wednesday, May 18, at noon in 238 Herald R. Clark Building.

Amado recently started a production company that specializes in media marketing for small business. Her passion in talking about social issues that affect communities has led her to make short documentaries about refugees, disabled children and domestic abuse in Guatemala and elsewhere.

She worked as an anchor for Radio Television Guatemala for more than six years and, for five seasons, served as a producer and host of “Esenciales para la Vida,” a BYU Television International show for Latin America, Spain and Portugal. 

A BYU broadcast journalism graduate, Amado currently lives in Orem with her family.
