Riggen found her way into writing and producing film, though she never thought she would end up as a director, comparing the chances of landing a career as a director to the chances of landing a career as an astronaut – slim to none.


In 2010, she was chosen to direct the 2011 Disney Channel original film Lemonade Mouth.

She has continued to direct feature films, with her next two being: Revolución (2010) and Girl in Progress (originally titled Ansiedad) starring Eva Mendes and Patricia Arquette. The film was released in 2012.

It was then released throughout Latin America before going to theaters in the U. S. and the rest of the world in November 2015.

When approached in 2010 to direct The 33, Riggen recounted her satisfaction that a woman would direct a film with such masculine subject matter. The 33 was shot in the Atacama Desert in Chile, as well as two mines in Colombia. Filmed in real salt mines over 35 days for 14 hour days 6 days a week, Riggen’s goal was to have the cast and crew understand what being a miner is like.


In 2007, Under the Same Moon, Riggen's first major film was released, starring Kate del Castillo and America Ferrera. Riggen partnered up with writer and producer Ligiah Villabobos for the creation of Under the Same Moon. Riggen and Villabobos are both Mexican-born but relocated to the United States, and after taking many years to embrace their careers, they became extremely passionate about the work they produced.

Funding for the binational film Under the Same Moon, which was started in an American studio before Riggen made the decision to direct it independently, was done through both a funding from the Mexican government, and American financers. The film was very well received in 2007 at the Sundance Film Festival.


Riggen was born in Guadalajara, Jalisco. While in her home country, she gained experience in journalism and writing for documentaries. In Guadalajara, Riggen obtained a degree in communication sciences, worked as a journalist, then later moved to New York City, where she received her Master's degree in directing and screenwriting at Columbia University. While attending Columbia, she directed two short films The Cornfield (2002) and Family Portrait (2004), a documentary, the former film won a number of film festival awards.
