Event Details

Papers is the story of undocumented youth and the challenges they face as they turn 18 without legal status. Currently there are more than 2 million undocumented children who were born outside the U.S. and raised in this country.

65,000 undocumented students graduate every year from high school without "papers" and find the door to the future slammed shut. It is against the law for them to work or drive. It is difficult, if not impossible in some states, to attend college. Yet they have no path to citizenship.

These are young people who were educated in American schools, hold American values, know only the U.S. as home and live at risk of being deported to countries they often not remember.

Papers is a moving story about coming of age, a human eye on the current immigration debateand a look at how the long-time custom of scape-goating continues to haunt America.

Graham Street Productions produced this film in collaboration with the youth who want to tell their stories and community organizations around the country who are working to change immigration policy on behalf of these young people. Youth are actively involved in all aspects of the production and distribution.
