Patricia Riggen was born in Guadalajara, Mexico. She worked as a journalist for Mexican newspapers, and later moved to New York City and made an award-winning documentary called Family Portrait, about poverty in Harlem. Now she has tackled her first feature-length fictional film - about the very real issues of Mexican immigrants struggling in the US. It's called La Misma Luna, or Under the Same Moon.
