About this event

Join Techqueria Friday 10/23 as we get together for a Virtual Screening of Dear Homeland!

Dear Homeland​ tells the story of Mexican singer/songwriter Diana Gameros coming of age in the United States while finding her voice as an artist. Told in large part through her hauntingly beautiful music, her 20-year journey takes her from Ciudad Juárez in Chihuahua, Mexico to San Francisco, California, where we watch Diana assert herself not only as a musician, but as an immigrant and advocate for immigrant rights. Through music, she finds the courage to share her own story of being undocumented — channeling her fears and the weight of her separation from her family into powerful songs

This lyrical and poetic film gives audiences a unique look into the challenges, aspirations and opportunities Diana experiences, providing a counter-narrative to the dehumanizing language that dominates present-day narratives about immigrants. ​Dear Homeland​ is a deep reflection on family, resilience and what it means to call a place home.
