At the Movies: Letters from Our Elders



Look out for this documentary featuring immigrant stories from the Haitian community in Tijuana as well as San Diego Border Dreamers, which is coming next week to the San Diego Central Library. The film's website describes the movie as "A film that shares stories about immigrants spanning generations and cultures in modern society." 

The independent film, “Letters from Our Elders,” by the Buenpaso Collective, seeks to connect the story of the director’s grandfather, a Holocaust survivor, with stories of today’s immigrants.  The documentary follows two Haitians who came to Tijuana and eventually into the U.S. and three members of San Diego Border Dreamers, a group of young unauthorized immigrants affected by the Trump administration’s changes to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
