But, of course the films will all be lovely, warm and fuzzy stories about resilient immigrants and refugees who bring the joys of diversity to your communities and thus bring love and peace to one and all.
“The idea of the films is to generate discuss (sic) about immigration.”
Yes, there are deserving immigrants, but WTH how can you have a real discussion without also discussing the cultural clashes and downright criminality some migrants bring to America?
That’s what grates on me! That is why I write this blog. I want balance in the discussions and since I’m not seeing it in the public square, I’m trying to balance the media’s diversity-is-beautiful meme right here.
If you missed my first post at Frauds and Crooks, here it is.
You will see much of my inspiration came from a report about a documentary film being produced in Columbus, Ohio (to get your minds right on immigration!) in advance of the 2020 presidential election.
Now comes news about TEN documentary films to be shown in Boston at the end of this month, all made by the immigrants themselves telling their own ‘stories.’
Leftists LOVE stories!
And, they sure know how to do propaganda!
Where are the films being produced by Americans who have suffered at the hands of migrants, either due to crime or the loss of jobs, housing etc?
Maybe there are some that I don’t know about, but they sure aren’t being shown at public forums are they (with a little Brie and wine on the side)? If they exist, I guess they are being watched in secrecy in people’s basements!
From the Revere Journal,
Ten New Films by and about Immigrants to Premiere in Boston
Ten short documentary films, including one on Revere resident Dimple Rana, will share a view from all over the world, featuring immigrants being filmed by immigrants.
The Boston-based Community Supported Film (CSFilm), with Michael Sheridan, founder and director, selected and trained 10 immigrants from 10 different countries to produce 10 short documentary films on their fellow new immigrants.
Five films including the one on Rana will be screened at each event at the Boston Public Library on March 31 and April 1. The idea of the films is to generate discuss (sic) about immigration.
The films include stories of Rohingya refugee, a Somali family, Haitian healing through dance, an Indian campaigning for office, a Puerto Rican cultural activist, a nursing home worker from Uganda, a Christian refugee from Bhutan, an Ethiopian helping rural Americans overcome addiction, and a story of an undocumented daughter with DACA status.
Now here is the best one of all! A New American immigrant becomes a community activist running for public office!
One film, directed by Qin Li, focuses on Revere resident Dimple Rana, who is Indian, who ran for a seat in the 2017 city council race, called “Campaign for a new American.” It’s actually a film about Rana’s mother, Lata Rana and raising a first-generation daughter who has an interest in politics and community activisim.
It has been nearly ten years since that propaganda film about Shelbyville, TN was produced and was shipped around the world by the US State Department and others.
It was meant to show how racist Tennesseans were against the Somalis who went there to work at Tyson Foods, but the bigots and haters (described by the film makers) supposedly ultimately saw the light and Shelbyville became a “welcoming” community where everyone lived happily ever after!
