Thankful for the people that were brave enough to trust our team to tell their personal story in this troubling time. AND personally grateful to be part of a talented group of filmmakers that worked together to craft this important documentary.
I hope people take a chance and watch, “The Deported” and eventfully have it inspire meaningful conversations about how to fix a broken immigration system.
