Build Solidarity with Two Documentaries

July 30, 2020

In come the teams behind PBS’ upcoming documentaries Latino Vote: Dispatches from the Battleground and Building the American Dream.

The latter focuses on the abuse of immigrant labor as a whole and in Texas in particular. Beyond that, it highlights the fight back, by way of a workers’ movement in the construction industry. 35-year-old filmmaker Chelsea Hernandez is the producer and director behind the documentary.

“I hope my film encourages Latinx viewers to be empowered to stand up against injustices in the workplace and build solidarity with BIPOC groups who are fighting for safer working conditions and living wages,” Hernandez tells Remezcla.
