‘Money Heist’ makers give sneak peak of new thriller

CANNES: The makers of “Money Heist,” the most-watched non-English language series in Netflix history, premiered their new show “The Pier” Tuesday, a romantic thriller also set in Spain.
Its creators Alex Pina and Esther Martinez Lobato told reporters that the new series was equally gripping — but in a “much more emotional way” — as they gave a sneak preview of the first episode at MIPCOM, the world’s top entertainment market in Cannes.
But while “Money Heist” (called “La Casa de Papel” in Spanish) takes place over 11 nail-biting days inside the Spanish Royal Mint as a crack team of crooks try to pull off the biggest robbery in history, “The Pier” is mostly shot outside in one of Spain’s most beautiful national parks.

What We Are Reading Today: Below the Surface

  • The book explores the latest research in ethnic and racial identity and interracial relations among diverse youth in the US

Authors: Deborah Rivas-Drake and Adriana J. Umaña-Taylor

Today’s young people are growing up in an increasingly ethnically and racially diverse society. How do we help them navigate this world productively, given some of the seemingly intractable conflicts we constantly hear about? 

In Below the Surface, Deborah Rivas-Drake and Adriana Umaña-Taylor explore the latest research in ethnic and racial identity and interracial relations among diverse youth in the US, says a review on the Princeton University Press website. 

Drawing from multiple disciplines, including developmental psychology, social psychology, education, and sociology, the authors demonstrate that young people can have a strong ethnic-racial identity and still view other groups positively, and that in fact, possessing a solid ethnic-racial identity makes it possible to have a more genuine understanding of other groups. During adolescence, teens reexamine, redefine, and consolidate their ethnic-racial identities in the context of family, schools, peers, communities, and the media.
