'HOME TRUTH,' previously known as ‘Jessica Gonzales vs. The United States of America,’ a film by 2009 NALIP Latino Producers Academy fellows Katia Maguire & April Hayes, will have its world premiere at the Human Rights Watch Film Festival in New York June 11th and 12th!
Filmed over the course of nine years, HOME TRUTH is about Jessica Gonzales, a Colorado mother, who, after the death of her three daughters, sues her local police, claiming they did not adequately enforce a domestic violence restraining order despite her repeated calls for help. Determined to make sure her daughters did not die in vain, Jessica pursues her case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court and an international human rights tribunal, seeking to strengthen legal rights for domestic violence victims. Meanwhile, her relationship with her one-surviving child, her son Jessie, suffers, as he struggles with the tragedy in his own way. HOME TRUTH chronicles one family’s pursuit of justice, shedding light on how our society responds to domestic violence and how the trauma from domestic violence tragedies can linger throughout generations.
Maguire and Hayes directed and produced the film. Tickets go on sale May 18, 2017, click here for more information.
