Traces of Home Film: The Summer Before Mexico
Date(s) - 09/07/2019

La Luz Gallery
Our Kickstarter Launch Party
After two months of planning, we are now exactly four weeks away from our Kickstarter Launch party! The event will be hosted at La Luz Gallery in Pilsen on Saturday, September 7, 2019 from 6-10pm.
We filmed in Palestine in this past March, and we are now raising $35,000 to complete the second half of production in Mexico in January 2020, where we will embark on a search to find my mother’s home in Mexico City. My mother hasn’t returned since she was eight years old, when her mother took her and her siblings to hide from her abusive husband in the United States.
The Kickstarter launch party will include a night of celebrating Mexican culture in the heart of Pilsen with food, DJ dancing, a raffle, a live Kickstarter raise, and screening of the new trailer for Traces of Home.
Please keep a lookout for the Kickstarter campaign itself if you cannot attend or aren’t based in Chicago but would like to support. It will launch on September 4, 2019 and run for the full month.
Thank you for all the continued support, please feel free to spread the word (especially if you know any press contacts!)!
