"I Couldn't Just Create Art for Art's Sake"

40 minutes

 Paola Mendoza is a critically acclaimed filmmaker, author, a human rights activist who carries her Colombian heritage and immigrant identity with pride and perspective. Paola knows what it is like to feel exhausted and disillusioned as if this country is not for her but against her. But she also knows resilience like it’s her middle name. She is a fierce feminist who is raising her son to be one. She recently co-authored a YA novel "Sanctuary". Our conversation was deep, profoundly honest, and introspective.  Produced & Hosted by Saadia Khan   Written by Yudi Liu, Saadia Khan   Edited by Tom Whelan   Music by Evan Ray Suzuki
