Sneak Peek of Oscar-Nominated Inocente's Art

If Only They Could See (16" x 16")

Inocente, a documentary short nominated for an Academy Award this Sunday and available now on iTunes, chronicles 15-year-old illegal immigrant Inocente Izucar's journey from homelessness to internationally lauded artist. Growing up with an abusive father and suicidal mother (she once nearly jumped off a bridge before being talked down by her daughter), Inocente sought solace in her paintings—bright, fantastical canvases that became an imaginative outlet.

Inocente's on-camera journey to create 30 new pieces in three months during the 40-minute short film is riveting. "She went from sleeping on the streets to flying across the country for art shows," says Ryan Brooks, an executive producer for the film. Still, the true standout is the art itself. Following her recent near-sellout Tribeca show, Details premieres Inocente's work.
