From the Back of the Line is a 30 minute documentary film exploring the impact of current legislation and immigration policies on the families of undocumented immigrants living in Charlotte North Carolina. Through interviews and exploration, the film will document the struggles of individuals caught in low-priority deportation procedures, parents raising mixed status families, High School and College-age students who have lived in the United States since childhood and other situations current legislation passes over.
So often in the nation’s dialogue about undocumented immigrants and immigration reform, those at the center of the conversation are regarded merely as statistics, without a true picture of their lives, hopes, struggles and dreams ever being communicated. From the Back of the Line seeks to give a voice and face to the people falling through the gaps of proposed immigration reforms in order that we might craft a better American landscape through diversity and a greater depth of understanding.
The film will premiere May 3rd at a free public showing in UNC Charlotte’s Center City building in uptown Charlotte, NC.
Charlotte, NC filmmakers Haberdashery Films, in conjunction with the University of North Carolina at Charlotte have partnered with Hannah Levinson, Armando Bellmas and the Latin American Coalition to create this unique regional film.
