Watching the Oscar Awards this past Sunday night with my girlfriends was such a treat, but the one thing that struck my curiosity was the documentary short movie called Inocente, and the beautiful girl in the white dress above.

I didn’t know about this movie prior to the award show and I haven’t seen it fully yet, but its a movie that will truly inspire and empower you.

Her circumstances do not define her.
Her dreams do.

The movie was shot mostly in San Diego and focuses on 12 year old, homeless teen, Inocente Izucar, when she started attending the San Diego Organization ARTS: A Reason to Survive. She is now 19 and shares her story of her unstoppable creativity in the midst of her dark and troubled homeless family-life.

The film, along with all the other nominated shorts (live action, animated and documentary) can be seen at Landmark Theaters at least through this Thursday. Take advantage of the opportunity!

Besides winning an Oscar, it’s the first Kickstarter-backed film to win an Academy Award, raising $52,527 from 294 backers last summer.

“Not only are you raising funds for your film, but you’re building a community and an audience and people that care about the film,” Andrea Nix Fine said backstage after winning the Academy Award. “They’re watching tonight, and you know they flipped out when the film won. So that feels great.”

    Very good blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Thanks!
