Directed by Mikaela Shwer, produced by Katie O'Rourke and Alexandra Nikolchev, the new feature documentary follows a brave young woman tired of living in the shadows.

About the film: 

Since the age of 4, Angy Rivera has lived in the United States with a secret that threatens to upend her life: She is undocumented. Now 24 and facing an uncertain future, Rivera becomes an activist for undocumented youth with a popular advice blog and a YouTube channel boasting more than 27,000 views. She steps out of the shadows a second time to share her story of sexual abuse, an experience all too common among undocumented women. Don’t Tell Anyone (No Le Digas a Nadie) follows Rivera’s remarkable journey from poverty in rural Colombia to the front page of The New York Times.

The event is free and open to the public but because space is limited we ask you to RSPV with Eventbrite at the following link: https://eventbrite.com/event/17679657331/
