Human Rights Watch Film Festival: Si Pudiera Quedarme (If I Could Stay) Film Screening + Q&A

February 3 @ 4:00 pm - February 3 @ 6:00 pm

Saturday, February 3
4:00–6:00 p.m.


See the California premiere of Si Pudiera Quedarme (If I Could Stay), a film by California-based filmmakers Florencia Krochik and Theo Rigby. Their film documents the story of two undocumented mothers, Jeanette and Ingrid. As they face deportation and separation from their young children, they and their communities rally support to keep them safe despite the risks. A story of courage and allyship, Si Pudiera Quedarme is a timely look at the transformative power of communities uniting for justice.

Note, the in-person event for Si Pudiera Quedarme (If I Could Stay) will include Spanish language subtitles and live interpretation of Q&A in Spanish.


The Human Rights Watch Film Festival features critically acclaimed films on topics including the rights of LGBTQ+ teens, family separation, refugee rights, disability rights, and the right to a free independent press in Native American tribes. Each in-person screening will be accompanied by a Q&A with filmmakers and human rights leaders.
