I loved this movie! It took me back to being an 11-year-old whose life had been turned upside down. And it shows how we deal with emotions like Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear and Disgust. The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival to rave reviews.

There’s a documentary called American DREAMers that’s premiering in Los Angeles on June 16, and we got a chance to talk to two of its creators at a local cafe.

It tells that deeply affecting story of six young people who walked 3,000 miles across the U.S. heartland to bring attention to the continuing struggle for immigrant rights. Five of the people featured in the film are undocumented and risked their freedom by publicly exposing their own status by making this movie.

I got to talk with co-director Saray Deiseil and co-director and writer Jenniffer Castillo recently. We covered how they got involved with the project, the difficulties they had, and the support they got.
