THE GREAT MOTHER

Expected to Attend: Director Dave LaMattina, Chad Walker; film subjects Nora Sandigo, Reymundo Otero, Valerie Travi, Ritibh Kay Kumar

WORLD PREMIERE Nora Sandigo has more than 2,000 kids. The fierce immigration activist serves as the legal guardian for US-born children of undocumented immigrants who have been deported. Were it not for her, many would be forced into the foster care system, keeping them legally separated from their parents. The Great Mother profiles this inspiring woman, who not only provides economic, legal and emotional support for her charges, but lobbies Congress for immigration reform despite an increasingly hostile political climate.

Co-Presented by Cinema Tropical.
