Academy Award® winner
At 15, Inocente refuses to let her dream of becoming an artist be caged by an undocumented, homeless family life. Color is her personal revolution and its extraordinary sweep on her canvas creates a world that looks nothing like her own dark past - - a past punctuated by a father deported for domestic abuse, a nine-year shuffle through overcrowded shelters and the constant threat of deportation. Told entirely in her words, Inocente is both a timeless story about the transformative power of art and a timely snapshot of the new face of homelessness in America. Our children.
