Afro Mundo presents All the World is Sleeping.

Fighting for her own life and the ones she loves, a Chicana in New Mexico sinks deeper into her addiction while struggling to surface for her daughter. This incredible film was created by Bold Futures and seven system-impacted women: we bring light to complexities of trauma, substance use, and parenting in this raw and riveting story.

In 2017 Bold Futures NM resourced seven system-impacted women to create a story that explored the complexities of trauma, substance use, and parenting in New Mexico. The insight derived through this process, and from our leaders evolved into a feature film highlighting characters with authenticity and heart with the aim of pushing back against the stigma faced by pregnant women and people living through substance use and addiction. This beautiful film will shed light on the realities of addiction, and the resources that are so desperately needed for families living in cycles of substance use and addiction while lifting the expertise of women who have lived these truths.
