The Great Mother
Dave LaMattina & Chad Walker, 97 mins, USA, 2019
This vérité documentary follows Nora Sandigo, legal guardian to over 2000 US-citizen children of undocumented immigrants, as she sacrifices everything to keep American-born children with their undocumented parents. Shot over two years and encompassing both the 2016 election and its aftermath, the film captures the most tumultuous years on record for immigrants in a deeply personal way.
