Six filmmakers took a road trip across New York State to take a closer look at the lives of workers. A Piece Of The Dream is an immersive-documentary website in which viewer of the site can have an experience on-line that takes them through the multi-faceted issues that New Yorkers are facing across the state.
The documentaries explore what a piece of the American Dream looks like for each of us.
Piece of the Dream is meant to engage and provoke audiences to bear witness to the impacts of earning a low-wage, gentrification, working in the country without documentation, finding work after incarceration and to confront the way that this economic marginalization systematically oppresses millions of people in this country, and in turn affects us all. Inspired by a vision of a more just and equitable society, A Piece of The Dream seeks to connect audiences to the stories of all workers and to imagine that another world is possible.
