Made in LA featured in Sojourners "Movie Night for Arizona"

We're thrilled that Made in L.A. is featured as one of four films that Sojourners is highlighting as part of its "Movie Night for Arizona" initiative, which encourages members to use film to explore the relationship between faith and immigration. In their "REEL Images of Immigration" toolkit they explain:

We invite you to be a part of educating Christians about the realities of the immigrant experience in our country and about our biblical mandate to treat them justly...

...Immigration and migration issues have affected societies throughout history. Through several modern films, we have the opportunity to examine different situations immigrants and their families face in our current day and age. Hosting a discussion after the film, which allows people to process, share, and act on what they saw, is a great way to educate yourself and your community about the need for immigration reform...

The other films included in the initiative are Dying to Live, The Visitor and Farmingville, all of which shed light on different aspects of the immigrant experience in the United States. We encourage you to visit the Movie Guide at FaithAndImmigration.org, and to consider screening Made in L.A. or one of the other great films in this initiative!
