In 2012, Rivera met documentary maker Mikaela Shwer who filmed her and her family for the film entitled No Le Digas A Nadie (Don't Tell Anyone). The documentary, which aired on PBS, navigates the difficult reality and double silence Rivera experiences as an undocumented immigrant and survivor of sexual assault.
