Latino Rebels are proud to support independent documentaries that focus on Latino filmmakers and issues that are important to our networks. Here is one film that we really want to see and support: CITIZEN ME: THE FORGOTTEN CLASS. You can like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter.

Here is an interview about the film and a description from YouTube:

At a time of increasing debate about immigration from Mexico, filmmaker Christian Rodriguez looks at the roots of the issue, its current state, and where it is headed. By interviewing immigrants from Mexico that have lived in the United States for varying amounts of time, the film offers a unique view into the often overlooked reasons for immigration across the border. It explores the reality of being an immigrant in a new land when the act of being an immigrant itself is at the center of a contentious national debate. In essence, this documentary is about the struggle of trying to be an American in the 21st century.
