Work in Progress

This thoughtfully crafted experimental documentary explores the effects of the 1986 Immigration Reform upon illegal immigrants that could not file for amnesty. The video uses a biting humor in a provocative collage of interviews, stock footage, image processing, presenting the complex forces that shape their experiences in the U.S.
