SENTIMIENTOS PROFUNDOS: CORDERO'S/CRODA'S 'I'M LEAVING NOW (YA ME VOY)'
14 September 2019 | by babyjaguarSee all my reviews

"I'm Leaving Now/Ya me voy" (2018, Group Effort Films/MU Media, 74 mins., color, English/Spanish) co-directed by Lindsey Cordero and Armando Croda and written by Josh Alexander and stars Felipe Hernández as the main protagonist, "Felipe". This film is centered on viewing the immigration narrative with its social and political implications.

Felipe is a Mexican immigrant living in Brooklyn, NY making money by collecting bottles from the streets to send his earnings to his family and saving money for his return to Guerrero, Mexico. This documentary explores not just the economical hardship, but the emotional strain of migratory experiences.

Felipe has to deal with his separation of family, especially with his youngest son (not seen for fifteen years). In a one scene, Felipe asks advice from a friend about the family separation, he says to have "sentimientos profundos" or "deep feelings" toward his missed son, he may see him now as a stranger.

This is part of continued themes and subjects for Mexico-born/Brooklyn-based filmmaker, Lindsey Cordero; her past documentary films had explored Mexican-American topics like "Chicano" lowriding.
