140 Conference: My Family's Incredible Story

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Saturday 12th March, 2011

4:00pm to 4:15pm (CST)

Growing up in Boston as an adopted child I knew almost nothing about my past. Then one day when I was 16 we received a phone call out of the blue that my family in Central America had been searching for me. We learned of an incredible story about how I had been “disappeared” from my family during El Salvador’s civil war. Now, 30 years later, I’m working on an interactive documentary film as I try to find my place in the world and honor those who sacrificed during the war.
