After Hours

The US immigration debate has reached extraordinary levels. But as Washington, DC spends its humid summer debating whether to deport thousands of children who entered the US illegally, Mary Mazzio has scripted an elegant and moving story of the sort of children the US is determined to expel. Underwater Dreams documents how a team of undocumented immigrant teenagers from a high school where most students grew up in poverty took on the challenge of a NASA-sponsored competition to develop an underwater robot – and beat a team from MIT in the competition. Only the US government didn’t let the team achieve the educations you might believe they deserved. The film chronicles the contest, the team’s subsequent travails and a reunion with their MIT competitors years later. It promises to be a classic. If you’d like to skip a few summer hours on the beach or in your hammock to chase this film, click here to check out the video and find out how.

Hasta la próxima!
