film projects

To date, My American Dreams has made six powerful videos about young immigrants from the North Bay; these have been continuously shown on our local Northern California PBS station (KRCB) and are now currently being shown on various PBS stations nationwide. We have also shown the videos during presentations on immigration law and policy at many community events throughout the North Bay and around the country.

We have also completed our 30-minute documentary "The Only Home I Know." airing on KRCB and PBS stations throughout the United States beginning in November, 2017. Watch it here.
