I’m Leaving Now

I’m Leaving Now Release Date: September 6, 2019

The big screen documentary I’m Leaving Now follows Felipe, an illegal Mexican, who has reached a crossroads: after 16 years in Brooklyn, working three low-paying jobs and sending the bulk of his earnings to his wife and children in Mexico, he’s decided to return home to the family he hasn’t seen in almost two decades. But when he informs them of his plans, he discovers that they’ve squandered the money, are deeply in debt and don’t want him to return. They need him to stay in the U.S. and continue to earn.

The film was shot over two years in the heart of Brooklyn.
