1 Min Xerpt – Experience the Fear of Deportation – Film 9 of 10 NIRV Fest

December 24, 2018

Day 9 of Community Supported Film’s 10 day New Immigrant and Refugee Visions film festival: Rafael DeLeon, who emigrated from the Dominican Republic in 2009, brings us an excerpt from his daring journey into the daily life of the undocumented in She’s an American Child.

New Immigrant and Refugee Visions (NIRV) is a bounty of stories about the current immigrant experience in the United States.

In these divisive times these stories have proven to transform minds and motivate action.

Get-the-NIRV and influence the national immigration debate –  from town halls to the Halls of Congress, in communities both welcoming and resistant to new immigrants.

Screen these films in your community and donate to our national screen and discuss campaign – and thanks!
