THE VIGIL/ LA VIGILIA

Project Synopsis:

La Vigilia is the story of Gina, an undocumented single mother who risks deportation when she joins a vigil on the Arizona state capitol lawn for over three months, attempting to stop the nation¬ís toughest immigration law from going into effect. We follow Gina as she becomes a leader of the vigil, and her transformation as she finds her voice after years of silence. Through the lens of the vigil, a portrait emerges of the community at the center of our immigration debate.
