About the Project
A youth documentary storytelling institute that engages young people living with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) in the nuts and bolts of self-producing a transmedia short. Los Herederos staff teaches the workshops and students learn to use key audio-visual equipment in a hands-on interactive setting. Participants emerge with: 1) a unique documentary piece that tells their stories in their own words and 2) the skills to replicate this type of work in their local community.
So often, the plight of immigrants is misrepresented by dominant media outlets or heavily curated by an outside source. This institute provides a first step in developing a group of DACAmented leaders who can play an important role in organizing other young people to advocate for the needs and rights of undocumented immigrants.
