Mind & Media’s Chief Creative Officer Aldo Bello has won an Impact DOCS Award for “DREAM: An American Story.”
DREAM follows Juan Gomez, an undocumented immigrant brought to the United States from Colombia by his parents when he was two years old. He grew up in the USA as the only country he’d ever known but faced deportation. Juan’s story is one of thousands of stories like it, the young people known as “Dreamers”–those who would be granted conditional residency, and, upon meeting further qualifications, permanent residency under the DREAM (Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors) Act.
The Impact DOCS Awards are in the Global Film Awards competition family. DREAM: An American Story won an Award of Merit Special Mention in the Documentary Features category.
