Coming to NYC’s DCTV this Monday, March 18:
I’M LEAVING NOW (YA ME VOY)

Directors:
Lindsey Cordero and Armando Croda

Premiere:
Hot Docs 2018

Select Festivals:
DOC NYC, DocsMx, Morelia

About:
An undocumented Mexican immigrant faces the limits of self-sacrifice.

The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
Felipe, an undocumented immigrant, combs the streets of New York City collecting cans to survive on the margins of society. After 16 years of hard living, he makes plans to return to Mexico but discovers his family has squandered his money and are in debt. Felipe must decide how much more he can sacrifice for a family he no longer knows. Cordero and Croda’s poignant portrait deftly explores the shifting of one’s allegiances through time and distance, and the delusions we tell ourselves to make peace with fate.
