Sean Fine expresses the lost voices sentiment  in his Oscar speech:

“…We feel like we need to start supporting the arts. They are dying in our communities. All of us artist and we need to stand up and help girls like her to be seen and heard. That’s so important.” — Sean Fine

The short documentary, Inocente, explores the issue of homelessness among youth. It follows a young girl named Inocente Izucar as she starts to set up her first arts show in alliance with the nonprofit organization ARTS

“Just because I am homeless, doesn’t mean I don’t have a life. Because I do have a life”

If Only They Can See by Inocente. For more information of her work – http://www.inocenteart.com/ {Click on image link for source info.}

Inocente is told entirely in her own words.  There are some amazing shots of her painting. The camera is attached to the paint brush. The audiences sees each brush stroke almost as a sign of strength and resilience—her voice coming alive through the medium of art.  Apart from her artwork, the documentary also gives an insight into the world of being undocumented in the U.S.A.

Inocente’s art work gives her a voice. This colorful documentary gives Inocente a platform to show the world she is more than just a homeless teenager, she is a true artist.
