Event

The Deportee's Wife 2013 Bay Area Showcase
Giselle Stern HernĂ¡ndez's husband Roberto was deported from Chicago, Illinois back to Mexico in April of 2001, five months before 9/11 happened. Giselle moved to Mexico to live with him in August of that same year. While she was born and raised in the States, and they were legally married, it didn't make a difference at all; her husband was deported anyway, with the order to stay out of the U.S. for twenty years. Due to the fact that this was second deportation, Roberto was ultimately banned for life from entering the United States.

And then there came the day that he wasn't allowed to enter Canada.

Twelve years and two months after Roberto's deportation, justice was restored. Yet, justice isn't always restored to the thousands of binational couples with complicated immigration stories in the United States.

Through images and her words, she tells audiences what happened through her eyes. In "The Deportee's Wife" Giselle brings a clear, distinctive and personal voice to an issue that's often swept away between sound bites and political promises. She tells you an immigration story that breaks down stereotypes and borders.

Giselle tells you a love story that you'll never forget.
