Stories of Immigration Front and Center on Global Voices

Posted on October 1, 2010
Take an intimate look at immigration this Sunday on Global Voices on PBS WORLD. First up, Paper Words by filmmaker Joyce Lee. The 3-D animated short tells the story of a bright 5-year-old from China who uses her imagination to cope with her new life in a small, Midwestern town. Then stay tuned for Point of Entry by filmmaker Zeus Quijano. The film follows Carlos, an undocumented immigrant living in the U.S. with his wife and two children. At 15, Carlos came to America and left his life and family behind in Mexico. Now Carlos is 30 and continues to send money home to his family. Enoy the films this Sunday and be sure to become a fan of Global Voices on Facebook to find out about upcoming broadcasts, and keep up with the filmmakers and news surrounding the stories you see on TV.
