Screenings Of Dream: An American Story

The Hoffman Family Library and the Library Advocacy Committee will show the film Dream: An American Story in the Auditorium on September 17, 18, 22, and 23 at 2:30 p.m.

Set against the backdrop of our nation’s heated immigration debate, Dream examines the dysfunctional U.S. immigration system through the story of Juan Gomez, a student under the threat of deportation. The film documents the rise of the national student and youth activist movement advocating the passage of the DREAM Act and the impact of immigration policy through interviews with students, politicians, immigration reform advocates, lawyers, ordinary citizens, and youth activists. Viewers will see the challenges that undocumented immigrants struggle with every day and gain an understanding of the strength and creativity they draw upon in their struggle for a better life.
