¨We are really excited with the international success of the contents of our catalog, which confirms once again that good stories know no borders, and that emotions are a universal language. Isabel and Hero´s Soul are undoubtedly two shocking stories that connect with the audience for their depth and for their humanity, both with a high level of production, and with great acting talent. We are pleased and thankful to the Trieste´s Festival for the recognition that has given to these two great productions by selecting them for this year's edition ¨, said Esperanza Garay, CEO of MGE.
Megamedia Chile's bioseries, Isabel, the intimate story of author Isabel Allende, is a story about forgiveness and overcoming pain to achieve success, which also shows the passion and risks taken by a woman who was willing to break all the socially accepted standards of his time to pursue happiness.

Hero´s Soul (Alma de Héroe) is a film inspired by real events and characters, which seeks to humanize the theme of war, through a love story that takes place in the middle of the armed conflict in the Colombian jungles, which has already been going on for over 60 years. The film stars Jorge Soto, Stephanie Abello, Lincoln Palomeque, Linda Lucía Callejas, and Tiberio Cruz; and the main music is from Juanes, who interprets the song ¨Me enamora¨ and a new acoustic version of ¨Volverte a ver¨.
Since its premiere in 2019, Hero´s Soul has received several awards, including the award for the best Fiction Feature Film at the II Hispanic Culture Film Festival (HCFF), and the ¨Public Award¨ at the prestigious Macondo Awards in Colombia.
