Storyline

A personal and vibrant coming of age story about a young artist's determination never to surrender to the bleakness of her surroundings. At 15, Inocente refuses to let her dream of becoming an artist be caged by being an undocumented immigrant forced to live homeless for the last nine years. Color is her personal revolution and its sweep on her canvases creates a world that looks nothing like her own dark past. 'Inocente' is both a timeless story about the transformative power of art and a timely snapshot of the new face of homelessness in America: children. The challenges are staggering, but the hope in her story proves that the hand she has been dealt does not define her, her dreams do. Written by Anonymous

beautiful story
27 December 2012 | by (Colorado) – See all my reviews

A beautiful story of truth that many try to deny. Art is everywhere. Homelessness affects children. Beauty born in the soul of a young girl and expressed outwardly can change lives for the better. Heartbreaking and celebratory at the same time. The strength some people have can wash over you and want you to become better. That is what this film did for me. I enjoyed the direction and vibrant colors. The truth in this young girls face is captured and seared into my heart. The film was done very well. The story doesn't leave you wanting more...her life does. You want to cheer and support and follow her. It made me see people through their experiences and talents (even if they don't see them yet).
