Abstract:

This documentary film tells the story of Vanessa, a teenager born in Mexico who has lived in the United States with her family since she was six years old. Once an excelling middle-school student with big dreams of becoming a doctor, Vanessa begins to be haunted by her undocumented status as she reaches high school.. Reconsidering her aspirations, Vanessa begins to give up on academics. Then, in the summer of 2012, President Obama approves the "Deferred Action" policy that would grant Vanessa immunity from being deported for the next two years, allow her to get a job and apply to college.. Vanessa's story offers a window into the DACA generation, the impact of this policy on a young person's life and the new challenges ahead. As government policies take new turns with a new administration, VIVA DIFERIDA highlights the uncertainties haunting undocumented youth and their families in the USA .
