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.
