IDB Cultural Center presents INOCENTE -
A documentary about art and hope

Join the IDB Cultural Center and the Smithsonian Latino Center for a screening of the Academy Award-winning documentary, Inocente.

This film tells the story of an unstoppable young woman from San Diego, Inocente Izucar, who refuses to let her dream of becoming an artist be caged by her life as an undocumented immigrant forced to live homeless for the last nine years.

The film will be followed by a panel discussion on local arts.

(Flyer and photos under Documents.)

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 screening will be followed by a discussion framed around the role that non-profit arts and cultural organizations have in creating meaningful social change.
