Website of the Week: They Come to America

The film focuses on the human and financial costs of illegal immigration. We filmed over the span of 14-months (Oct 2010 – Nov 2011) and journeyed through many states including but not limited to Arizona, Illinois, Florida, DC, New York and Colorado. The debates, events, people, and places we captured on film is simply amazing. When it comes to the topic of illegal immigration, this is a first-of-its-kind film.

I am not a political guy. I am not proud of this fact, but I have only voted once in my life and it was like 20-years ago, I couldn’t tell you who I voted for? That said, there is no political agenda fueling this film.

Truth is, before making this film I never gave a single thought to illegal immigration. And yet, for some crazy reason, I went as far as risking my life to produce a non-partisan documentary about the hottest political topic in America. What’s even crazier is why so many people don’t want you to see my film.

I have been turned down by roughly 30 US film festivals, every Hollywood distributor I contact ignores me, most theater houses won’t allow me to rent their screens, a digital distributor made it so my film will not be available on iTunes, Netflix or cable VOD before the elections… the list goes on and on and on and on. But even still, I won’t give up. ~ Dennis M. Lynch
