My American Girls: A Dominican Story (#1403)
In vivid verite detail, My American Girls: A Dominican Story captures the joys and struggles over a year in the lives of the Ortiz family, first generation immigrants from the Dominican Republic. Both funny and touching, Matthews' film captures the rewards - and costs - of pursuing the American dream.
