Coming to Starz tonight, Monday, July 22:
THE GREAT MOTHER

Directors:
Dave LaMattina and Chad Walker

World Premiere:
DOC NYC 2018

Select Festivals:
Miami, Athena

About:
A portrait of an activist who has become the guardian of immigration orphans.

The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
Nora Sandigo has more than 1000 kids. The fierce immigration activist serves as the legal guardian for US-born children of undocumented immigrants who have been deported. Were it not for her, many would be forced into the foster care system, keeping them legally separated from their parents. Dave LaMattina and Chad Walker’s intimate film profiles this inspiring woman, who not only provides economic, legal, and emotional support for her charges, but lobbies Congress for immigration reform despite an increasingly hostile political climate.
