filmmaker's note
Immigration, while not a new topic, remains one of the most hotly-contested issues of our time. In the US, recent events related to the topic of immigration have moved votes, spilled guts and emotions, and prompted actions. It has both united and divided colleagues, friends, and families. Many fiction films and documentaries about immigration and immigrants have been produced with characters ranging from innocent children to overstaying tourists to your next-door neighbor trying to make ends meet to the farm workers and day laborers to victims of human trafficking to renowned personalities including a Pulitzer Prize winner. Yet, we are barely scratching the surface of the immigrants’ stories.
