Last summer, when a million and one things were going on, Dream Team L.A. members were helping, then student, Thenmozhi Soundararajan, in doing a short movie about the Dream Act struggle and the students who make it up. As her worked progressed and filming began, she reached out to the group in terms of having folks participate in the movie as extras for some of the group shots.
This is a behind the scenes pic I took during the shoot at USC. We all had a good time doing it and were curious about how the film came out in the end. Living in L.A., your always around movie shoots and it's part of the day to day scenery, but it was cool to be a part of it and funny to see ourselves during the scenes we took part of.
The movie is only 20 min, but it hits the nail on the head. Anyone who is familiar with the Dream movement will see themselves in this movie, one way or another. Thenmozhi brought a lot of respect and dignity to the movie project, because of her own personal experiences and being able to relate and find the intersections. It's def worth checking out and sharing, so SHARE IT !!
