At the upcoming New York Film Festival, award-winning filmmakers Michael Camerini and Shari Robertson, the team behind “Well-Founded Fear,” will premier a series of nine documentaries charting the past decade in U.S. immigration reform efforts. The series is part of the “How Democracy Works Now” segment, and takes a close look at the politicians and activists behind one of the nation’s most explosive and controversial political issues. Highlights include exclusive interviews with the late Senator Ted Kennedy, and intimate conversations with Cecilia Muñoz, who now works for the Obama administration but was still an immigration activist during filming.
The New York Film Festival opens on September 27, and the immigration series will be screened at locations throughout the city October 11 to 13.
