New Film ‘America’s Family’ Brings Immigration Injustices to Big Screen



New Film ‘America’s Family’ Brings Immigration Injustices to Big Screen

 Immigrants are rarely portrayed in Hollywood films or television projects, except as caricatures and stereotypes. The human cost of our harsh immigration policies is not a typical film trope in spite of the harm that countless people face. To remedy that, the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights in LA (CHIRLA) has backed the production of a new film directed, written, and produced by Anika Tourse called America’s Family. Tourse also stars in the movie.

 

Rising Up with Sonali is a radio and television show that brings progressive news coverage rooted in gender and racial justice to a wide audience. Rising Up With Sonali was built on the foundation of Sonali Kolhatkar's earlier show, Uprising, which became the longest-running drive-time radio show on KPFK in Los Angeles hosted by a woman. RUS airs on Free Speech TV every weekday.
