Home is Somewhere Else

Home is Somewhere Else (in spanish Mi Casa Está en Otra Parte) is the first Mexican animated documentary released on 2023 and in which it will address 3 different styles of 2D animation in each of the stories presented that speak about the experiences of migrants on their way to the United States.
