Chiquis: Rocío – Inspiring Compassion

On this chiquitasode, Cynthia interviews Dario Guerrero, the director of Rocío – a film capturing Dario’s mother’s fight against cancer and her last days with family in Mexico, and Dario’s decision to go with her, risking his ability to live in the U.S. In this interview, Dario tells us about the challenges of making the decision to “self-deport,” the failures of the medical establishment, and his experience at Harvard (both the privileges and frustrations).
