through film. "really hard to think of another issue as politicized and as partisan as immigration. i've been here in des moines now for a few days and it's been television ads from the candidates and whenever immigration comes up i'm wondering like are they talking about human beings? it sounds insects." the festival is an effort to show reporters covering the candidates different angles of the immigration debate and introduce a more human angle to voters. the festival will show six feature length films preceded by six short films. all of the films exploring different immigrant experiences through both narratives and documentaries. the festival it runs through saturday night and tickets are still available another big hollywood name
