ABOUT THE FILM:
Don't Tell Anyone (No Le Digas a Nadie) is a film about courage, facing insurmountable obstacles and the determination to fight for justice. In an environment where silence is often seen as necessary for survival, 24 year-old Angy Rivera steps out of the shadows to share her parallel journey of being undocumented and sexually abused, an ordeal all too common in her community. We follow Angy's personal story from poverty in rural Colombia to the front page of The New York Times as she becomes a beacon in a movement for national change. Along her journey Angy inspires her undocumented mother Maria to speak openly about her status as well. Through verite footage and candid interviews, we witness firsthand the all too real consequences faced by over 11 million undocumented people in America today, many of whom have no options for a pathway to citizenship.
Directed by Mikaela Shwer and produced by Katie O'Rourke and Alexandra Nikolchev.
