Colombia Telenovela Controversy

Colombia Telenovela Controversy

FILE – In this July 11, 2013 file photo, a woman holds a poster of Mother Laura Montoya or Madre Laura, inside the cathedral in Bogota, Colombia. The planned July 29, 2015 debut of a TV soap opera dramatizing the life of Madre Laura, Colombia’s only Roman Catholic saint, is shrouded in controversy after devotees of the missionary nun filed a lawsuit seeking to correct what they say is an unseemly depiction. The Congregation of Missionaries of Mary Immaculate and St. Catherine of Sienna, the order founded by Montoya, says that despite repeated requests it was never consulted by producer Caracol about the script. The group questions the network’s right to use Montoya’s name and image, whose copyright it claims. (AP Photo/Fernando Vergara, File)
