Description

"United We Stand?" is a documentary video showcasing the stories of international and first-generation immigrant students at Bridgewater College to contrast with the rising trends of nationalism in the United States. Using participants from Ghana, Kyrgyzstan, Gaza, Mexico, Spain, and Peru, a narrative is found between them about opportunity, stereotypes, and hope for the future while the disconcerting narratives of nationalistic voices from the media play amongst them. This video asks where Americans stand on the issue of immigration and whether we can come together on them because of the positive contributions of those from other countries, like the students featured in this short film.
