A friend of the attorneys at Jaensch Immigration Law Firm recently submitted a video he made about the life of undocumented immigrants in New York and the hope that immigration reform is giving them for achieving the American Dream.
Partha first arrived from India to play tennis at IMG Academy. He won a tennis scholarship to study at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania and obtained his degree. He worked in investment banking for a while before deciding to follow his passion to become a filmmaker and moving to New York City.
Seeing the plight of undocumented immigrants in NYC and being an immigrant himself, Partha decided to add his voice to the call for reform through film. As he put it, he wanted to differentiate himself from the many other films being done about this issue by making his a fiction piece, and incorporating more comedy. By showing just how ridiculous the situation can be for some of the nation’s immigrants, he hopes to produce serious reflection on immigration law and its economic impact, healthcare and human trafficking.
Below you will find the first mini-promo Partha filmed. He plans on filming two more. He is using the promos to gather support for filming a full-length feature. His goal is to raise $55,000 by January. So far he’s raised $16,000.
Future plans include kicking off a Kickstarter campaign and continuing to raise funds through his network of friends, family, and colleagues.
