Released in April 2013, The Dream is Now is a compelling 30-minute documentary by Academy Award-winning director Davis Guggenheim (Waiting for 'Superman', An Inconvenient Truth). The Dream is Now gives voice to and puts a human face on the undocumented children of immigrants who are desperate to earn their citizenship and give back to the only country they've ever called "home." The film also goes beyond the personal. It places these stories in a larger context and explores the consequences of continuing our current policies and maintaining the status quo – consequences, not just for these young people today, but for our country's future.
Both moving and thought-provoking, The Dream is Now brings this pressing issue to America's attention, where we can all debate, discuss, and decide for ourselves what is right, what is fair, and what is best for our nation.
