Cup of Culture: Rocio
Rocio follows the journey an undocumented mother of three who receives a terminal cancer diagnosis and self-deports herself to seek alternative care. Woven from home videos collected by the Guerrero family since 1988, the film serves as a lens through which we begin to understand the Mexican immigrant experience. Rocio was adamant about supporting the community she came from and this film continues that mission by highlighting the flaws in the American healthcare and immigration systems and our peoples’ tenacity in subverting them. 1h 3m.
