I made this film to give a young Mexican immigrant a voice so he could share his story with the world. Many people, including powerful political figures, are quick to judge and condemn others based on their race or country of origin—I believe that this judgment comes primarily from a lack of understanding that we are all human beings, with hopes, fears, and dreams. It is my hope that sharing Diego's Dream will begin to eliminate this lack of understanding, and help those who might be inclined to hold prejudices to instead feel sincere concern for people like Diego.
