SPIA Online Archive

SPIA Media Online Archive

Creating a history that matters to the people the history is about is the imperative that informs and shapes the stories I tell and the movies I make. This is the mission of SPIA Media Productions, Inc., founded in l998.

“SPIA” means to “see” in the Cape Verdean language, or in this instance, vision. SPIA’s vision is to build history one story at a time, in different forms and media and create a sustainable legacy that engages and draws from the voices, memories, hopes and dreams of a community connected to New England by a unique transatlantic history.
