Nativism: July 2009 Archives

I'm very pleased to post the trailer for the upcoming film, 9500 Liberty, on this blog.

I've had the pleasure of running into the directors of the film, Annabel Park and Eric Byler, on several occasions.  I've watched a lot of documentaries on different aspects of migration to the U.S.  Two of my favorite documentaries are De Nadie, and Wetback: The Undocumented Documentary, because they capture the experiences of Central American migrants, so well. 

9500 Liberty is special, though.  It is special for two reasons: (1) the film is born of one of the most impressive pro-migrant web 2.0 experiments I've ever had the pleasure of witnessing and (2) it captures the hyper-local intensity of the culture war that uses the U.S. migration policy debate as a proxy.
