In May I visited Casa Marianella in Texas to begin the documentary filming. In September, I will be visiting CAFEMIN in Mexico City and will be interviewing refugees there with founder Sister Magdalena Silva.
One documentary iteration will act as immersive stand-alone profiles in a gallery setting. Another documentary will showcase the need for shelter and (very few) organizations that provide proactive shelter (not prison or detention centers) for refugees and immigrants.
