WEDNESDAY 10/27, 6:45 PM (SESSION 15)

Director: Yesica Prado
Producer: Marcia Jarmel

Description:

Yesica lost her housing in San Francisco while she was a graduate student. She came to the Berkeley Marina and joined a community of vehicular residents already residing there. They created a network of support for one another, showing the empathy, resilience, and kindness present even in the face of precarious living. Prado captures these elements in her most recent work, Quarantine Diary, which she completed in collaboration with visual storytelling nonprofit Catchlight as an inaugural CatchLight Local Bay Area Fellow for the San Francisco Public Press.


Biography:

Yesica Prado is a multimedia journalist and a first-generation Mexican immigrant from Nezahualcoyótl, Mexico. Yesica grew up undocumented in a southeast neighborhood in Chicago, Archer Heights. With limited choices for a job without social security, she ventured into photography to learn a skill –– a trade. She hoped to earn a living as an independent contractor and attended the University of Illinois at Chicago, earning a BFA in Photography. But unexpectedly before turning 21, she was granted a U-Visa. Yesica took advantage of this new opportunity, expanding her borders to seek a master’s degree in journalism from the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism.
