While immigration is one of America's most fiercely controversial issues, little is understood about the growing Latino presence in the U.S. This excellent new documentary reveals the direct correlation between centuries of U.S. armed intervention in Latin America and the Caribbean and today's immigration crisis. Adapted from the popular new book written by award-winning journalist Juan González of radio and television's Democracy Now!, the film by Wendy Thompson-Marquez and Eduardo López  in conjunction with director Peter Getzels and editor Catherine Shields  vigorously details the social conditions and U.S. government actions (overt and covert) that led inexorably to millions of Latino families to flee their homelands, triggering an unprecedented migration that is transforming America's cultural and economic landscape.    

In addition to rare archival material, this film features interviews with Nobel Peace Prize winner Rigoberta Menchú, the Reverend Jesse Jackson, Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Junot Diaz, Mexican historian Lorenzo Meyer, ACLU Executive Director Anthony Romero, poet Martín Espada, journalists Maria Hinojosa and Geraldo Rivera, historian and broadcast journalist Juan González, and film producer Wendy Thompson-Marquez.

In person:
Wendy Thompson-Marquez is the President and CEO of the Onyx Media Group and EVS Communications, Inc. In 2004 she was honored by the National Conference for Community and Justice with the Media and Community Service Award. Currently she is a board member of Latino Public Broadcasting, the Washington Performing Arts Society, and the Community Foundation in D.C.

Miguel Gavilan Molina, a longtime activist, is the Executive Producer of KPFA Radio's La Onda Bajita, and Associate Producer of Flashpoints.
