- Sept.14 – Viva Cuba is a “Rome and Juliet” type tale about the friendship between two children and how it becomes threatened by their parents' differences.
- Sept. 21 – Madeinusa is a 14-year old girl who lives in an isolated village in the Cordillera Blanca Mountain range of Peru. This strange place is characterized by its religious fervor. Everything changes with the arrival of a young geologist from Lima, who will unknowingly change the destiny of the girl.
- Sept. 28 – The Violin is a story about a man and his son and grandson who live a double life. They are musicians and humble farmers who support the peasant guerilla movement's armed efforts against an oppressive government.
