Inocente, a 15 year-old San Diegan, refuses to let her dream of becoming an artist be caged by her life as an undocumented immigrant forced to live homeless for the last nine years. Color is her personal revolution and its extraordinary sweep on her canvases creates a world that looks nothing like her own dark past — one punctuated by a father deported for domestic abuse, an alcoholic and defeated mother of four who once took her daughter by the hand to jump off a bridge together, an endless shuffle year after year through the city’s overcrowded homeless shelters and the constant threat of deportation.

This film screening is a part of the USD Just Read! program in collaboration with many partners across campus. Watch this film regarding homelessness, one of the topics for the 2019-20 USD Just Read! theme Defining What is Home? Homelessness, Displacement, and Migration
