Home / Now Showing / SPLIT AT THE ROOT
Executive produced by award winning actress and humanitarian Rosario Dawson and directed by Emmy nominated director Linda Goldstein Knowlton, SPLIT AT THE ROOT follows the emotional journey of mothers separated from their children at the U.S. border and the grassroots initiative that, against all odds, reunites those families. When a Guatemalan mother seeking asylum was separated from her kids under Zero Tolerance Policy, a Facebook post by a mother in Queens coalesced into a movement as thousands of like-minded women across the US refused to stand by quietly. Immigrant Families Together was born as a rapid response group committed to doing what the government couldn’t—or wouldn’t do: reunite parents with their children separated by the Zero Tolerance Policy. Over four years, IFT reunited hundreds of families. Over 2,000 children’s reunification status are still unknown, and thousands of people impacted by separations are still suffering the effects of pursuing asylum.
In addition to its world premiere at the 2022 SXSW Film Festival, SPLIT AT THE ROOT was an official selection for the 2022 Hot Docs International Documentary Festival, the 2022 Morelia International Film Festival, the 2022 Heartland International Film Festival and the 2023 Palm Springs International Film Festival.
