Hearts that Cross Borders (USA | 2017, 19 min)

Directed by: Renee Stork

Written by: Michael Ricotta

The short film opens a discussion about immigrants, traveling abroad searching for love and happiness. But once they cross that border, they have to deal with new issues and problems and how to build relationships with their new families. There is always the sore question of immigration, international unions, stereotypes and prejudice. I came to the USA four years ago and met my husband while studying at the Theatre School. Life has thrown us a lot of challenges that we were able to overcome. This film is roughly based on my life story and spiced up with the characters and situations faced by my American and immigrant friends.
