Cielo Salviolo, director of Pakapaka, said in a dialogue with Télam that “birthdays are necessary to rethink history. The signal spans two generations. For many children in the country who accompanied the channel at its beginning, today they are already teenagers and the signal is in their affective memory.
In addition, he emphasized that Pacapaca marks a before and after in children’s television in Argentina and Latin America.
In this sense, Salviolo emphasized the role of Zamba’s character to give visibility to the signal at a global level.

“What we did through the universe of Zamba and Nina allowed us to bring the story closer to the youngest. Bringing Belgrano, San Martín, Juana Azurduy and María Remedio del Valle closer to the youngest is important for us,” he noted.
From the children’s signal, they rely on the construction of diverse stories and characters that allow to cover the different experiences of childhood.
“We recognize that boys’ and girls’ experiences start from different experiences, and that’s why we’re betting on a diversity of characters, stories and content,” said Salviolo.

“Zamba and Nina will have their own program on Public Television, where they will tour the whole country,” the Pakapaka director confirmed, adding that “3D” content is being developed for the character.
“We are preparing with everything to continue renewing the screen and generating cultural offers,” concluded the director.

This activity was not only for children but also for adults who, tempted, were part of the colorful party.
Such was the case with Victoria, Ambar’s mother, who, after seeing her daughter’s make-up, decided to get involved.
