Attend Film Screening on Undocumented Immigrants

Friends of the Fox Presents: Don’t Tell Anyone (No Le Digas a Nadie) on Wed., Jan. 13, 7-8:45 p.m. at Edith M. Fox Library, 175 Mass Ave., Arlington.

Angy Rivera had two crucial secrets in her life. The first was that she was an undocumented child living with her mother and siblings in New York City for 19 years. That secret was a constant source of fear: If her immigration status was discovered, she could be deported and her family shattered.

The second secret was more tragic: Rivera had been sexually abused by her stepfather from ages 4 to 8, a secret she eventually revealed and which, in the strange world of immigration law, helped her gain the visa she had always desired. Her poignant, inspiring odyssey is the subject of Don’t Tell Anyone (No Le Digas a Nadie). Director Mikaela Shwer met Rivera, now 24, while the young woman was still undocumented. After the two developed a friendship, Shwer began filming Rivera’s quest to help others living in immigration’s “shadows” and to gain a visa for herself.

Following the screening, learn more about the complicated issues surrounding immigration in the U.S. through other media. To watch the trailer and learn more about the film, visit
