Indocumentales Presents “Sanctuary,” 10/21
(Andrea Córdoba, USA, 2019, 73 min.
In Spanish and English with English subtitles)
Winner of the Best Film and Best Documentary Awards at the Brooklyn Film Festival, the debut feature by Andrea Córdoba follows Amanda Morales who walked into a church in New York City not knowing when she would step outside again.
The Guatemalan mother of three U.S.-born children is the first immigrant since President Trump took office to claim sanctuary in New York, publicly resisting her deportation within a space that ICE recognizes as protected. Sanctuary gains rare and intimate access to Amanda and her family as they fight to remain together and adapt to daily life inside a church.
