Nuestro Futuro (Our Future)
"Nuestro Futuro (Our Future)" features five Hispanic youths in South Carolina who are at different stages of adapting to American culture. As immigrants, they have endured major difficulties such as learning a new language, attending school and dealing with the prejudices that are associated with being a newcomer. This new role also has repercussions within the family structure since they often become the lifeline for Spanish-speaking family members. The show also examines the settlements of Hispanic families in South Carolina and their ties across the border.
Nuestro Futuro explores how Latino children adjust to their new roles in an unfamiliar country. The program follows five young Hispanics living in South Carolina. Their stories tie into larger themes about the impact of the growing Latino population on communities in the South. How are these recent immigrants being received? What new freedoms do they experience? What new challenges do they face? What do their stories bring to the history of immigration in America? Producer/Director Alejandro Baez, Associate Producer Betsy Newman and Videographer Gaines Halford were the core crew for this program. Watch more videos from Nuestro Futuro on SCETV's Knowitall.org
