Casa de Los Angeles is a safe haven for the children of the single mothers who come from the outskirts of town into the city to sell goods at the market, work in factories, clean the streets, clean houses, or other low end jobs to support their children. Casa de los Angeles has built daycares for these children where they can be fed, educated, and loved while the mothers work.
The founder, Donna Quathamer has let me, Alex Palma, create a documentary about the program and the families that are involved. Most of the families in the program are made up of a few kids, and a single mother. Most of the fathers are not around as they have went north to the United States, or have left since the mother was pregnant. I will spend about ten days in San Miguel de Allende to film this documentary that will capture the mothers’ stories and daily lives, along with the story of Casa de los Angeles.
This project will not be cheap to facilitate, but I am determined to make it happen. My goal is to raise at least $3,000 dollars to create this film. This money will go towards travel expenses, lodging, food, equipment rental, film festival entrant fees, and distribution. This is where I need your help. Any donation, no matter what amount, will help create this film. Your support will help share the stories of these families, and help Casa de Los Angeles grow.
Any kind of support or donation will be greatly appreciated!
