Feature Films:

Building the American Dream 
Dir. Chelsea Hernandez
(United States, 73 min., 2019, English; Spanish w/ English subtitles, Social justice)
Across Texas, an unstoppable construction boom drives urban sprawl and luxury high-rises with its dirty secret: abuse of immigrant labor. Building the American Dream captures a turning point as a movement forms to fight widespread construction industry injustices. Grieving their son, a Mexican family campaign for a life-and-death safety ordinance; A Salvadorian electrician couple owed thousands in back pay fights for their children’s future; A bereaved son battles to protect others from his family’s preventable tragedy. A story of courage, resilience, and community, the film reveals shocking truths about the hardworking immigrants who build the American Dream, of which they are excluded.

John Leguizamo’s Road to Broadway
Dir. Ben DeJesus
(United States, 59 min., 2018, English, Comedy / Theater) 
John Leguizamo’s Road to Broadway follows the always provocative John Leguizamo as he prepares for his most challenging theatrical quest yet – cramming 3,000 years of Latino history into 90 minutes of stage time for his latest one-man show, Latin History for Morons. With extraordinary access to his creative process, the film traces the evolution of his latest success and also tells the story of how an immigrant with a passionate voice and big dreams found a home in the top echelon of the theater world. Latino Public Broadcasting Films Showcase.

José Lezama Lima: Letters to Eloisa
Dir. Adriana Bosch
(United States, 64 min., 2020, English; Spanish w/ English subtitles, Literature)
Centered on the remarkable letters by José Lezama Lima to his sister living in exile in the United States, this feature-length documentary Letters to Eloísa tells the story of the Cuban writer’s life and work; weaving together the public and the private, the literary and the political, ultimately to focus on how the writer’s voice, at first amplified by the revolution’s cultural policies, was ultimately silenced by the absence of creative freedom in Cuba during its most tumultuous decades.
