My Life Inside
This documentary by Lucía Gajá has received several awards around the world; it relates the story of Rosa, a Mexican woman who in 1999, at age 17, illegally immigrated to Austin, Texas, USA. In January 2003, Rosa is held under suspicion of murder and tried in August 2005. Rosa’s trial, verdict, separation from her family, helplessness and imprisonment in a foreign country make My Life Inside a reality within the lives of Mexican immigrants in the United States.
