Project Statement

“Dos Mundos” is a multimedia documentary project that explores the intergenerational impact of migration on the families of migrant mothers from Central America.

The project offers a perspective on migration through the voices of Vicky A., born and raised in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, and Sara Raquel S., born and raised in San Salvador, El Salvador. Through collaboration with them, “Dos Mundos” also offers a way of looking at their physical, psychological and spiritual worlds that opens the door to their dreams and possibilities, and shatters stereotypical representations of immigrants.

Working in an emotional space, photography, text, and video evoke the memory of these mothers’ lives in their home countries, and intimately explore presence, absence and the psychological weight of separation caused by not being able to return (Vicky A.) and by growing up separated from her parents (Sara Raquel S.).
