As you may know, we are trying to raise funding for promotion and distribution of our feature documentary film about a family divided by the US/Mexico Border for more than 10 years due to the family man’s undocumented status. It is a story of hope and sends a positive message, despite the sacrifice this family has made. Please make a contribution and tell others about it.

Her work has also been screened at several film festivals, which include: The Oaxaca International Film Festival, Dallas VideoFest, Vistas Film Festival, to name a few.
