This film is brought to you by the Connecticut Institute for Refugees and Immigrants (CIRI). "Undocumented" is an unbiased look at all sides of illegal immigration, the biggest cultural challenge facing America today. In 2008 at the age of 25, Justin Malone traveled to over 24 U.S. cities and Guatemala; compiling nearly 320 hours of interviews, protest rallies and heated exchanges from multiple perspectives. “Undocumented” first screened at the USA Film Festival and rose to local popularity, but distributors felt its political stance was “too neutral” despite its powerful voice. The message was clear - Americans weren’t ready for this cultural phenomenon. Fast forward to 2018, a time of divisiveness on this issue in the US. “Frankly, I am shocked that ‘Undocumented’ is more relevant now than the original filming,” said Malone. “It was a prediction of where we’d be today.” Concert Tickets Free
