This is My Country


 

This is My Country
A Pas de Deux of Light and Shadow
7 minutes  

Rising bigotry towards immigrants is spawning fear and anxiety that permeate the lives of children who are just trying to get through school in the country they call home.

Just after the 2016 presidential election, filmmakers Ellen Bruno and Jay Rosenblatt put out a call to filmmakers nationwide soliciting short films to be curated into a program called Filmmakers Unite. There were no restrictions on subject matter, style, or genre-- only that the film be a response to the election. This is My Country was among the films chosen, and Filmmakers Unite screened at festivals around the world.
