Carlos Hagerman and Jorge Villalobos’s film HOME IS SOMEWHERE ELSE is an animated feature documentary providing a window into the hearts and minds of immigrant youth and their undocumented families. The film features three personal stories about immigrant youth in America, highlighting the complexities and challenges they face today. Voiced by the actual children and their families, the stories are woven together by spoken word poet Lalo “El Deportee”, the film’s host and MC whose vibrant “Spanglish” breaks codes, switches standards, and pushes the viewer to decipher his poems, and their own preconceptions about what it means to be American.
In English and in Spanish with English subtitles.
Q&A with executive producers Albie Hecht and Susan MacLaury to follow.
