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
It is one of special films opening new perspective about life, near reality, art, homelessness .Its simplicity is moving and it is easy to define it as a testimonial. But it represents more. A slice from near reality. The basic idea - the art of a young homeless. The fear about the opinion of other about her, the memories and the effort to be herself. Not exactly a story but a lovely portrait of struggles to be. For long time, her voice sounds again and again, creating each image and each inflexiotion as kick to see the authentic truth.
