On September 24, Working Films will release Stories Beyond Borders, a film series that shares a comprehensive picture of the current day experiences of immigrants and their communities. This project was co-created with National Korean American Service & Education Consortium (NAKASEC), National Domestic Workers Alliance, UndocuBlack Network, and United We Dream. Watch the full trailer here.
Beyond building empathy, these films lift up real stories of resilience and strength, while illustrating ways people can give their time, energy, and resources to support immigrant-led efforts for justice. Screenings kick off today in Tennessee and North Carolina, and are followed by more in Texas, Colorado, Arkansas, Georgia, and Michigan. The series is publicly available for anyone to host a screening in their community by request. Every screening is free and open to the public, and includes a discussion facilitated by those leading efforts for immigrant justice in their communities.
