Jovita y Valentín

Documentary feature currently in production. So far we have filmed in Southeastern Arizona, Southern California and in the states of Puebla and Hidalgo, Mexico. The next step is to raise the necessary funds for post-production and be able to release it in the fall of 2023.


A cross by Álvaro Enciso to honor a migrant who died in the Arizona desert.


Jovita García Ortiz. Valentín Flores Flores. They are just a couple of the thousands of migrants dying in their attempt to cross the Arizona desert to the US. This film shows how their families and communities have been transformed by their losses. And is also the story of Alvaro, Eli, Marisela and Mirza, four migrants taking action on both sides of the border to help find, identify and repatriate Jovita and Valentín.


This project has been developed by a multidisciplinary group made up of Dignicraft, and professors and researchers, Maite Zubiaurre from the University of California Los Angeles and Jonathan Crisman from the University of Arizona.
