Stories of Immigration Now Available Online

Posted on November 19, 2010

Two ITVS films, both of which aired this season on Global Voices, are now available to own online. Paper Words by filmmaker Joyce Lee and Point of Entry by filmmaker Zeus Quijano each take an intimate look around immigration issues.

Paper Words is a 3-D animated short which 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. In Point of Entry, we meet 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.
