I helped make this video back in 2008. Juan, the subject of the film, went on to be one of the leaders of the DREAM Act movement, including marching from Miami to Washington in the Trail of DREAMs. This is one of the first videos I ever produced, but still one of my favorites.
Congratulations to Juan and all the DREAM students on their hard-fought victory. America thanks you for helping our nation live up to its own dreams.
