Selena Gomez is making headlines as Netflix announces her Executive Producing title alongside the stirring documentary title: Living|Undocumented.
In 2018, eight undocumented families took the extraordinary risk of allowing film crews to chronicle their lives as they faced potential deportation. Ranging from harrowing to hopeful, their journeys illuminate and humanize the complex U.S. immigration system. Living Undocumented depicts the struggles many must endure in their quest to pursue the American dream.
We snagged a quote from Selena on why she involved herself with this specific project. “I chose to produce this series, Living|Undocumented, because over the past few years, the word immigrant has seemingly become a negative word. My hope is that the series can shed light on what it’s like to live in this country as an undocumented immigrant firsthand, from the courageous people who have chosen to share their stories.”
