Film Maker Changes Her View

Namrata Singh Gujral is a film maker who wanted to produce a documentary favorable to illegal immigration. But in the course of her research she changed her mind and decided that it is harmful–except to those who profit from it. She stated:

“I set out to make a film that was going to be very pro-illegal immigration, pro-caravans, pro-migrants, that’s where I started. The film ended up completely different, and I think it was because I stuck with the investigation.

“I was at a crossroads. Do I tell the truth and go ahead and make the film or do I walk away from the film because it doesn’t agree with me or my industry? I decided to stay truthful to my craft of filmmaking and tell the story as I saw it without bias or preconceived notions.”
