Recovering Irma winds its way across geography and generations, memories and mysteries searching for answers to the difficult question: “How do you end domestic violence?”

Hi, I’m Sandra Salas the director of Recovering Irma.

This film explores the questions that arise when you grow up in a family with domestic violence. My nephew and I are searching for tools to break the cycle. We’re taking a road trip from San Francisco to my parent’s hometown of El Paso, Texas to discover how the cycle of domestic violence started in our family and also to understand why it continues to repeat itself.

My hope is by sharing my story I can help raise awareness, build compassion, grow solidarity, encourage action, turn survivors into thrivers, and save lives.
