CINEMAJAW 373, BEN-HUR URIBE – BEST IMMIGRANT MOVIES

Trivia: “Story” movie Trivia (movies with “Story” in the title)


As is written on the Statue of Liberty “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.” These days, these words are more important than perhaps ever. The story of the immigrant experience is a very popular story, perhaps because everyone, in some way, starts out as a stranger in a strange land. We all strive to find community. This week on CinemaJaw we explore our favorite Immigrant Movies.

Joining us is a filmmaker who has told some immigrant stories of his own. Ben-Hur Uribe is a dual citizen of Mexico and America, which gives him a the perfect perspective to the topic. His latest film Alonso The Dream and the Call is recently available on Amazon. It was a real treat to talk with Ben!

Welcome to CinemaJaw… all are welcome here.
