Why this series?

In the political climate of the last few years the term “immigrant” has come to have a negative meaning. It connotes an “illegal alien” prone to criminal activity and a burden to society. This documentary series attempts to rehabilitate the meaning of the word by putting all the immigrant groups that have made the United States their home since its founding, at the same level no matter if they are of European, Latin American, African or Asian origin. The series is, in effect, a retelling of America’s story, of the myriad communities who settled in various regions and established their sacred piece of home.

 

Many minority ethnic groups in this country feel invisible. Some fear we are being erased or subsumed in the “melting pot.” Statistics minimize our presence. Mainstream discussions tend to stereotype or dismiss us. This series offers visibility and a chance to be counted - a place to speak out with authentic voices. Most of all, it gives us a chance to claim our membership in the American nation.
