Art and Inocente (NYC)
Be inspired on Wednesday, November 19 by a free screening of the colorful Academy Award-winning short documentary Inocente, followed by a Q&A with the film’s directors.
On Wednesday, November 19, the Center for Community Action and Research, Body and Mind House, Cinema House, Gotham House, and REACT to FILM invite you to a night of inspiration and art as they host a free screening of the Academy Award-winning short documentary Inocente and a Q&A with the film’s directors at 7:00 p.m. in the Pace Art Gallery in NYC.
Inocente is a film about the very real, day-to-day existence of a young girl who is battling a war that we rarely see. At 15, Inocente (the film’s namesake) 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—a past 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. The challenges are staggering, but the hope in Inocente’s story proves that the hand she has been dealt does not define her, her dreams do.
All Pace students, staff, and faculty are welcome to join for the screening, as well as the follow-up Q&A session with the film’s directors, Sean Fine and Andrea Nix Fine. Pizza will be served.
