Life Outside the U.S.
ABOUT “LIFE OUTSIDE THE U.S”
Can the American Dream be achieved outside of America? In our new collaboration with Immigrants Rising, “Life Outside the U.S.,” you can explore a myriad of stories from undocumented immigrants who chose to leave the U.S. to pursue their dreams elsewhere. With testimonials documented by Citizen Film, the project takes you through some of the considerations and phases immigrants experience when making this kind of life changing decision.
