NHMC applauds ARRAY for acquiring and releasing the executive produced documentary by Rosario Dawson, “Split at the Root.” This film, which is now streaming on Netflix, is a powerful tale about the power of family and the spirit of mothers that will stop at nothing to be with their children.
Split at the Root” follows the emotional journey of mothers separated from their children at the U.S. border and the grassroots initiative that, against all odds, reunites those families. When a Guatemalan mother seeking asylum was separated from her kids under Zero Tolerance Policy, a Facebook post by a mom in Queens coalesced into a movement as thousands of like-minded women across the US refused to stand by quietly. Immigrant Families Together was born as a rapid response group committed to doing what the government couldn’t—or wouldn’t do: reunite parents with their children separated by the Zero Tolerance Policy.
