Inocente

USA, 2012, 40 Minute Running Time
Genre/Subject: Documentary

June 2, 2013: Inocente (4:15) (4:30)
Academy Award® Winner for Best Documentary Short Subject (2013)
Followed by Q & A with Inocente and public reception
In collaboration with RedLine's exhibition Not Exactly: between home and where I find myself.


Intensely personal coming of age feature documentary about a young artist’s fierce determination to never surrender to the bleakness of her surroundings. At 15, Inocente 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.

Told entirely in her own words, we come to Inocente’s story as she realizes her life is at a turning point, and for the first time, she decides to take control of her own destiny. Irreverent, flawed and funny, she’s now channeling her irrepressible personality into a future she controls. Her talent has finally been noticed, and if she can create a body of work in time, she has an opportunity to put on her first art show. Meanwhile, her family life is at a tense impasse – – if she legally emancipates herself from her mother to strike out on her own, she’ll risk placing her brothers in foster care, but to stay is unbearable. INOCENTE is both a timeless story about the transformative power of art and a timely snapshot of the new face of homelessness in America, children.
