Camera in Hand

How’s everyone doing? Right now I’d like to say something about the interviews and videorecordings that we’ve been doing in the Mountain View Dayworker Center.

All of this has happened thanks to the efforts of Eliot, one of our English teachers. We started with a team of six people who went through training at the media center about how to use a camera, the basics to be able to begin the project. Basically, this documentary is focused on the life of immigrants from Mexico, Central America, and South America who have come to this country in search of new opportunities. It isn’t easy to get started in this country. In the documentary people talk intimately about their experiences, from the beginning–from first making the decision to leave their home country and undertake the journey to the US. Many times these experiences are not good, and the idea behind this documentary is to show people the reality of why we are here. I know that we Latinos have made mistakes as a community, but the truth is that we have come to look for opportunities that we have been unable to find in our home countries. It has been interesting to participate in the making of this documentary, since before I didn’t even know how to turn on a camera. Thanks to the center and its volunteers for making this possible, thank you to everyone.
