Review: Inocente

MTV recently aired a documentary about a undocumented and homeless teenage girl pursuing her passion of becoming an artist. 

I can honestly say that I had a box of tissues in my lap throughout this whole film. Inocente's circumstances are heart-wrenching and almost hopeless, but with the help of a few non-profit organizations, she has the chance to change her life.

Shine Global is a non-profit film production company.  All donations go to the production of their films and Shine Global donates all net profits to local non-governmental organization working on behalf of the children and issues documented.

ARTS-is a San Diego based nonprofit organization dedicated to providing, supporting, and advocating for arts programs that heal, inspire, and empower youth facing adversity. Their unique program framework and model creates a one-stop shop for kids to be exposed to and engage in the arts at many levels depending on their circumstances, skill level, and interest.

Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEFis the nation’s leading Latino legal civil rights organization. Often described as the “law firm of the Latino community”, MALDEF promotes social change through advocacy, communications, community education, and litigation in the areas of education, employment, immigrant rights, and political access.
