RACCA

RACCA was written, shot, and edited over 24 hours for the AT&T Developer Create-A-Thon Film Challenge.  It won the Best Social Justice Film award at the Oniros Film Awards, has been selected to three other festivals, and is in consideration for many others. 

The film is set In an alternate universe, where the president has implemented RACCA - Re-assessing All Current Citizens Act. In an effort to revive the country's economy, anyone from a family established in this country for 3 generations or more will be "relocated" to their family's country of origin.

We aim to bring awareness to the negative impact the repeal of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) will have.
