Cinema Tucson "Home is Somewhere Else"



7 p.m., May 24, 2023

Join us for the Cinema Tucsón film screening of Home is Somewhere Else on Wednesday, May 24th at 7pm with co-director Carlos Hagerman! Located at the Fox Tucson Theatre !

Home Is Somewhere Else is a fascinating animated feature documentary offering a window into the hearts and minds of immigrant youth and their undocumented families. The film features three personal stories about immigrant youth to highlight the complexities and challenges they face today.

Voiced by the actual children and their families, the stories are woven together by spoken word poet Lalo “El Deportee,” the film’s host and MC whose vibrant “Spanglish” breaks codes, switches standards, and pushes the viewer to decipher his poems. Each story has its own unique visual animation style drawn by three different teams. The animation allows us to truly see and feel these characters’ worst nightmares, alongside their colorful hopes and dreams for a better future.
