¡Sí, Se Puede! is a timely short documentary highlighting the current immigration reform issues being debated within the United States. Check the about page for more information, or watch the film online.
• ¡Sí, Se Puede! will be appearing on a compilation DVD organized by Submedia, due out before Mayday 2007. All money from this project will be split between the contributing videomakers and grassroots immigrant rights organizations from around the country.
The Giant Awakens: In 2006, a historic mobilization for immigrant rights swept the USA as millions took the streets. Mainstream news media predictably covered the marches with a mix of surprise, ignorance, and racism, yet grassroots media activists were there to document the voices and the stories behind this mass movement.
¡Gigante: Despierta! is a DVD compilation of compelling short films from all around the country, due to hit the streets in the weeks before Mayday 2007. Shot, edited, and brought together by a network of independent video activists, graphic designers, community organizers, musicians, and immigrant rights activists, it is a collective memory and a tool to inspire action this MayDay 2007, when the Giant will raise its voice again to say: we are one people, without borders. We are here, and we are here to stay!
