Beyond Borders: Undocumented Mexican Americans

BEYOND BORDERS: Undocumented Mexican-Americans examines US policy decisions that triggered the rise of undocumented immigration in a deeply moving documentary program that explores the under-reported lives of Mexicans living and raising families in the United States. The film carefully explains the history of the relationship between the two countries – Mexico and America – some of which may be unfamiliar to viewers. In telling the stories of several undocumented Mexican-Americans, BEYOND BORDERS reveals the reasons why millions of Mexican workers have settled in the US over the past four decades instead of returning home. It also illuminates the remarkable networks that connect the film’s characters with the families they left behind, and the very real human impact of the anti-immigration backlash now sweeping the country.

powderBEYOND THE POWDER is a documentary film that follows the female pilots of the 2014 Air Race Classic racers as they make their way across the country, while telling the story of the first women’s cross-country air race of 1929, also known as the Powder Puff Derby. The first Women’s Air Derby in 1929-which was comprised of 20 women, including Amelia Earhart-was flown from Santa Monica to the  finish line in Cleveland, kicking off the National Air Races. The country watched as these brave women made history flying cross-country, breaking into a competition that was thought to be for men only. They encountered sabotage, death, and all the difficulties of flying at the dawn of aviation. Today the Powder Puff Derby continues as the Air Race Classic, with modern day racers carrying out the legacy and the adventurous spirit of the original racers. Showing that they were more than just their make-up, the original Derby contestants have inspired those flying today to truly push beyond the powder.

Remembering Manzanar

pearlharborIn the aftermath of the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor, the United States of America forced nearly 120,000 Japanese Americans to move to internment camps. The fear of espionage or sabotage was more powerful a force than the rights of the citizens.

The Manzanar War Relocation Center was one of these camps located in the Owens Valley in California. Photographers Ansel Adams, Dorothea Lange, and Clem Albers, among others, documented life at Manzanar. Their photos and the stories of Manzanar now serve as a reminder to this and future generations of the fragility of American civil liberties.
