During lunch at the Immigration Law Teachers Workshop 2014 today, where I am live blogging, there was a discussion with documentary filmmakers Michael Camerini & Shari Robertson. Camerini and Robertson, who are known for their documentary, Well-Founded Fear, featured clips of their 2010 decomentary, How Democracy Works Now.
How Democracy Works Now tells the story of the fight for immigration reform between 2001 and 2007. It tells twelve stories - from the August 2001 negotiations for immigration reform pre-9/11 to Spring 2007 when Senator Ted Kennedy was advocating for reform - that seek to depict the struggles, compromises and strategies for changing immigration law.
