News of the format in the Canary Islands
This new space, which has located hidden cameras throughout the Archipelago to capture the reactions of island citizens, promises a special night of emotions and surprises tomorrow Friday. Addressing from the premiere with the first two stories various current affairs in the Islands. On the one hand, the first case, coinciding with the celebration of the International Day against Breast Cancer, last Monday, shows the story of Hermi, a victim of this disease, who must face a false doctor who tries to take advantage of the emotional weakness of sick and offers you a miraculous natural treatment that cures cancer. While the second story is a complaint against racism through the testimony of Djiby Diao, who at the age of fifteen arrived in the Canary Islands aboard a boat.
Among the novelties that Suelta El Mando incorporates into the program, it should be noted that, instead of actors, in the Islands it is the victims themselves who, in collaboration with different NGOs, recreate the real episodes of discrimination they have had to face in some moment and that they want them not to happen again. Therefore, this space also represents the recognition of the ability to overcome many canaries who have suffered unfair situations on their own skin and who have had the courage to relive them for the cameras of ‘Wonderful People’.
And, of course, a recognition to those anonymous heroes who do not remain impassive in the face of unjustified attacks on other people or who have suffered humiliation for reasons of race, gender, sexual condition or disability. When any of them face or defend the person who is being discriminated against, the program’s team will appear on the scene to explain that they have experienced a hidden camera and that it is ‘Wonderful People’.
