Waking Dream is a series of short documentary films following a group of young undocumented people with big dreams, as they walk into an uncertain future. Check out the crowdfunding campaign for the film on Kickstarter through January 19th, 2017.
Waking Dream is a series of short documentaries about the lives of young undocumented people across the U.S. The series of short films will follow a diverse set of young undocumented people, coming from a range of ethnic/cultural backgrounds and different geographic locations in the U.S. Waking Dream will follow these characters into the first year of the Trump administration, in which they could potentially lose work authorization, and shift from having many of the privileges of a U.S. citizen, to being at risk of deportation at any time.
Right now, Waking Dream is looking for people with DACA who want to tell their stories. If you, or someone you know may be interested, please go to the link below, fill out the form expressing your interest and we'll be in touch!
The undocumented community is often talked about as a monolith. We made this short piece to complicate that notion, and to get at the diversity of identity, culture, and experience of people in the U.S. without legal status.
