Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! We are excited to have two special guests on the show -- filmmaker team Chris Temple and Zach Ingrasci. Every film they produce is accompanied by an impact campaign to create measurable outcomes. Today, we're discussing their 2020 documentary short The Undocumented Lawyer, which portrays the struggles immigrants go through when coming to the United States.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The first undocumented immigrant in the U.S. to have bar membership
  • How attorney Lizbeth Mateo inspired the film The Undocumented Lawyer
  • What the film can do to further the advocacy work of Lizbeth
  • The difficulties that unrepresented immigrants, including children, go through in the U.S.
  • Organizations involved in working with immigrants
  • The demand for immigration lawyers
  • The way storytelling affects people, as opposed to cold facts
