Islands of Loneliness

Islands of Loneliness 

When undocumented immigrants cross the US Border from Mexico, the journey is dangerous and will impact their mental health for the rest of their lives. Immigrants who cross the border will experience stress and anxiety while others develop depression. In spite of the challenges, healing is part of the culture of resiliency that immigrants embody as they acculturate into new communities. Islands of Loneliness documents the experiences of Mexican immigrants in Northern California and their resilience through their eyes and the testimonials of immigrants, Mexican scholars, and psychologists who are also from immigrant families. The documentary is set for production in  2024 with an anticipated premiere of fall 2024.
