I Carry You with Me, Academy-Award® nominee and NYWIFT member Heidi Ewing’s luminous, moving debut as a narrative filmmaker, follows a tender romance between Iván and Gerado, spanning decades. Starting in provincial Mexico and continuing as first Iván, then Gerardo, journey towards sharing a life together in New York City. The film, winner of two awards at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival, is an intimate love story, as well as a soulful rumination on family, sacrifice, regret, and ultimately, hope.
Ewing gracefully traces both men’s lives from childhood through the decisions that lead them into adulthood. Iván, an aspiring chef and young father, hopes to secure a spot in a restaurant kitchen while supporting his child. But the discovery of his relationship with Gerardo causes conflict and, in despair, he makes the arduous choice to cross the border into the United States, promising his son and his soulmate Gerardo that he will return.
I Carry You with Me (Te Llevo Conmigo) marks Heidi Ewing’s debut as a narrative director. As a documentary filmmaker, she is known for special access and a bold visual style. Jesus Camp (co-directed with Rachel Grady) was nominated for the 2007 Academy Award. Other notable titles include: One Of Us, Norman Lear: Just Another Version Of You, Detropia, 12th & Delaware, The Boys Of Baraka, The Education Of Mohammad Hussein, The Kid With The Dog, Branded, Freakonomics, And Love Fraud. She is a proud member of the Directors Guild of America and AMPAS, and the co-owner of Brooklyn’s Loki Films.
