Oscar winner “Inocente” to be recognized at San Diego City Council

March 25, 2013

WHAT:  Inocente, the subject of the recent Oscar winner for ‘Best Documentary Short’ at the 85th Academy Awards will be presented with a proclamation by the City of San Diego which will proclaim March 26, 2013 to be Inocente Day in the City of San Diego.

As a child Inocente moved more than 30 times in nine years — sleeping in crowded quarters beside her three younger brothers under one temporary roof after another, and sometimes even outdoors. Her father was deported to Mexico for domestic abuse. She once stood on a bridge and convinced her mother not to jump. Her art and chronic homelessness are the subject of the moving award winning short documentary.

WHEN:  Tuesday, March 26, 2013 at 10AM

David Alvarez with District 80 residents
