THE ARTISTS DESCRIBE THEIR WORK: “Martha Razo is an average American girl. She likes walks on the beach, fireworks and all the things an American girl loves. She has achieved academic success at a university and works hard. However, her life is full of obstacles. She is one of 11 million undocumented Americans. MY DREAM ACT – written by Martha Razo and Cecilie Keenan – takes the viewer on a journey through Mexican/American History and Martha’s own personal story. What does it mean to be an undocumented immigrant? How has history evolved over the years? Who belongs here? Moving, funny, insightful: MY DREAM ACT is one young woman’s journey navigating the laws of her adopted country and her ever-changing status.”
