These three short films—Pursuing the Dream, Nowhere to Go: Shutting Out Syrians, and The Call to Sanctuary—examine issues related to immigration in the U.S. that impact undocumented and refugee communities.
Pursuing the Dream looks at the protections provided to undocumented immigrants through the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and the threats they face from intensified deportation actions. Nowhere to Go: Shutting Out Syrians tells the stories of everyday Syrians living amidst a violent civil war and what has driven millions to flee their homeland. The Call to Sanctuary breaks down the ways that communities and individuals can support their undocumented neighbors through a how-to video guide.
By exploring the growing complexities of immigration in the United States, this series seeks to highlight the human story of immigrants pursuing better lives in the middle of conflict.
