On TV: VISITOR’S DAY

Coming to PBS’s Doc World this Sunday, October 7:
VISITOR’S DAY

Director:
Nicole Opper

Premiere:
AFI Docs 2016

Select Festivals:
DOC NYC, Miami, SF Latino, San Diego Latino, Guadalajara, Mill Valley

About:
A runaway tries to reconnect with his father.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
Escaping an abusive home, Juan Carlos spent years on the streets of Mexico City before finding his way to a unique group home for runaway boys. As the 16-year-old adjusts to his new surroundings, receives educational and job training, and learns to trust adults again, he still longs for a connection to his father. With visitor’s day looming, will Juan Carlos find what he’s looking for, or only suffer disappointment once again?
