Step Into the Story is a community outreach and educational event designed to explore the powerful stories behind the issue of immigration to get beyond the strident and divisive tone of the polarizing political debate. Our national immigration laws have created a moral, economic and political crisis in the U.S. This summer represents a critical time in the movement to pass compassionate and just immigration reform to address this crisis.
The Immigrant Story through Film. Screening of three short films followed by a filmmaker Q&A and discussion.
Erika Andiola- featured in "The Dream is Now"
Charlene Music- producer of "The Old Immigrant's Dance"
"The Dream is Now" gives voice to the stories of the undocumented children of immigrants, the "Dreamers", who are desperate to earn their citizenship and give back to the only country they've ever called "home".
"The Fence" is a compelling and provocative look at the stories of construction workers, ranchers, border security agents, immigrants, and self -appointed militiamen involved in the attempt to secure the 2000+ mile border with Mexico.
"Old Immigrant's Dance" ("Danza del Viejo Inmigrante") looks at the unique challenges and opportunities facing elderly immigrants in their journey to become citizens of the United States.
