Rubi: A DACA Dreamer in Trump’s America is a documentary that tells the story of how the current immigration crisis in the United States has imperiled the lives and aspirations of more than 800,000 young adults now registered under DACA. The film documents the nation's most recent resurgence of anti-immigration bigotry and violence through the experiences of a young woman, Rubi, who must navigate the costs associated with failed immigration policies and the dehumanization of bodies reduced to exchangeable commodities under neoliberal economic flows.
Rubi is an intimate true-life portrait of 22-year old Rubi, an undocumented Mexican-American DACA Dreamer. In revealing interviews filmed over three years, Rubi and her parents (also undocumented) recount their family's harrowing immigration story and detail why they came to the United States with their then-7 year old daughter.
