See this special film screening: The Whole World is Waiting @ the Brattle

How did it come about that immigrants, who made our nation what it is, are now being demonized by cynical demagogues for political gain? A much needed corrective to this propaganda is The Young Writers And Leaders Project, a Portland, Maine, community-service program which has been instrumental in producing The Whole World Waiting, David Meiklejohn's compilation of short films about the lives, disappointments, triumphs and dreams of 15 local teenaged immigrants (see Deirdre Fulton's review on page 29).
