“The Roots of Freedom” aka “Las Raices de la Libertad”



RIPfilms has one feature documentary film in production. The film is the miraculous story of what Alexis and Sylvia Marroquin (brother and sister) experienced in their journey to freedom from El Salvador to the United States. The film will be a series of intense interviews of Alexis Marroquin, Sylvia Marroquin, and “El Gringo Schindler,” whose actions resulted in the brother and sister getting their Green Cards in 2021.

Like other RIPfilms, multiple recreations will allow the audience to experience the emotion of this truly remarkable story. The entire Marroquin family will play significant roles in the film. The film will be shot in El Salvador and Texas. Now that the Marroquin brother and sister have their Green Cards, they plan to journey back to El Salvador with "El Gringo Schindler" to show the viewing audience places seldom seen on film. Finally, the film will steer clear of politics and concentrate on the humanity of his story.
