A film about home, love, and motherhood, “Home: Joselyn’s Story” is the story of Joselyn, who was brought to the United States from Honduras by her mother when she was 9 years old. As a mother now, she reflects on the decision her mother made for her, risking everything to give her daughter a better life.

This short film was produced during The Representation Project’s 2019 Summer Youth Media Academy in Oakland, California. The first-time filmmaking team was made up of Isabel Lozano, Leonie Sarath, Griselda Martinez, Susana Torres & Nattaly Gomez.
