Program 17 - 'iAm' & 'The Long Ride'

  • Cinema Village 22 East 12th Street New York, NY, 10003 United States (map)

iAm - During these especially troubled times for immigrants and immigration, this short film really hammers home how we are all so much more the same, than different. We take a deeper look at the JAYU film festival's initiative  that empowered 25 newcomer youth from the Middle East in Toronto to share their versions of home, both at the iAm Gallery and in this short documentary. Eye-opening and touching. (2016, 13 min)

The Long Ride - A timely new documentary about the historic 2003 Immigrant Workers Freedom Ride that sparked the birth of the new Civil Rights Movement for immigrant workers in the U.S. and the ongoing fight to fix the broken immigration system. More timely now than ever. (2017, 1 hr 17 min)
