1. Flor de Muertos (Flower of the Dead) examines the cross-cultural collisions regarding death along the US and Mexico border, commencing with the Mexican celebration of the Dia de los Muertos and ending with the All Souls Procession when 20,000 locals turn out in skull face to rattle through the streets of downtown Tucson, Arizona, to remember, honor, and dance with the dead.

  2. “A DREAM A Part” is a short film about five Asian undocumented students and their lives living in the United States. These students are actively fighting for the passage of the DREAM Act, a piece of pending bi-partisan legislation that would provide undocumented students that arrived in the US before the age of 16 a pathway to legalization if they attend two years of college or serve two years of the military. These students are involved in ASPIRE (Asian Students Promoting Immigrant Rights through Education), the first and only undocumented Asian Pacific Islander youth group.

    ASPIRE is a program of the Asian Law Caucus. The Asian Law Caucus is the nation’s first legal and civil rights organization serving the low-income Asian Pacific American communities. Its mission is to promote, advance, and represent the legal and civil rights of the Asian and Pacific Islander communities.

  4. TIPMovie.com Possibly one of the most important films of the Century.

    After encountering an immigrant crossing the Arizona desert, Emmy Award Winner and Filmmaker Lourdes Lee Vasquez set out to understand why people would risk their lives to come to the U.S.. Her quest takes a shocking twist when she musters enough courage to cross the line at a protest and has an encounter with whom she believed was her enemy.

THE IMMIGRATION PARADOX is a feature length documentary that exposes the missing information to the immigration issue by interviewing an array of people from various backgrounds, which include economics, sociology, philosophy, history, policy, and activism. This documentary will move you beyond the villain or victim scenario, the heated rhetoric and sensationalism to reveal the bigger picture.
