President Obama: Fixing Immigration

In an address to the nation, President Obama lays out the executive action he's taking to fix our nation's broken immigration system

The Browning of America

Olmeca teams up with the National Day Laborer Organizing Network (NDLON) and PUENTE Movement to bring you a music video depicting the growth of Latinos in the U.S. The video centers around beautiful “video portraits” of individuals and families within the Latino community. These portraits include past deportation detainees and their families, as well as, immigrant rights activists.

The Case for Napping at Work

Most Americans don't get enough sleep. People are exhausted. It's time for a wake-up call. It's time to embrace the office nap.

Cuban Music in the Streets

Walking along Trinidad streets, in Cuba, Armando Flores found this little band, giving away their art to the wind. And there's many more like them in the island. Enjoy. 

Documentary: The Other Side of Immigration

Based on over 700 interviews in Mexican towns where about half the population has left to work in the United States, The Other Side of Immigration asks why so many Mexicans come to the U.S. and what happens to the families and communities they leave behind. Through an approach that is both subtle and thought-provoking, filmmaker Roy Germano provides a perspective on undocumented immigration rarely witnessed by American eyes, challenging audiences to imagine more creative and effective solutions to the problem.
