The Dream is Now tells the stories of undocumented youth and their families who are desperate to earn their citizenship in the only country they’ve ever called home. The film will premiere this month in Washington DC then screen on college campuses and in communities across the country to raise awareness of the urgent need to reform America’s immigration laws.

If you are interested in having a screening in your community, please email: film@thedreamisnow.org.

He Named Me Malala (2015)

He Named Me Malala is an intimate portrait of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai, who was targeted by the Taliban and severely wounded by a gunshot when returning home on her school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley. The then 15-year-old (she turns 18 this July) was singled out, along with her father, for advocating for girls’ education, and the attack on her sparked an outcry from supporters around the world. She miraculously survived and is now a leading campaigner for girls’ education globally as co-founder of the Malala Fund.

WE ARE CONNECTED TO EACH OTHER

There are seven billion people on earth of all different shapes and sizes, different ethnicities and cultures, languages and customs. We like to define ourselves as individuals and think of ourselves as truly unique, but the experiences and emotions that we feel, are shared. They unite us. 

Science has proven that all currently living humans descend from a Mitochondriaial Eve and a Biological Adam. Although we may look different on the outside, we are 99.9% genetically identical. It’s that 0.1% that gives us our own identity. 

THE DREAM

There’s a forest in central Utah, called Pando, that is comprised of 47,000 quaking aspen trees; all connected by one, giant root structure. While each tree might look slightly different on the surface, the entire forest is actually a single, living organism. When one tree gets sick, the roots feed it additional nutrients to nurse it back to health. Like Pando, we’re dependent on one another for survival. The forest is harmonious; able to co-exist with the species that surround it.

THE NIGHTMARE

In the Malheur National Forest in eastern Oregon, exists the largest living organism on Earth. The honey mushroom covers over 2,200 acres and spreads underground, killing trees by attacking and feeding off of their roots as it grows. 

There are those who suggest that the human race is an infestation – as we  exponentially grow, we sap Earth’s natural resources and kill every other species in the ecosystem. 

WHO ARE WE?

So, which is it? Are we one, harmonious family unit that feeds and protects each other and works to co-exist with our planet (like Pando)? Or, are we collectively destroying that which surrounds us, like the honey mushroom? Or, both? Or, neither?
