Living Undocumented is a 17-minute documentary by Tatyana Kleyn and Ben Donnelleon that explores the lives of diverse undocumented immigrant youth to illustrate the realities, challenges and opportunities they face through high school, college, and beyond. It features 6 DREAMers, who portray the realities of the US immigration system and its impact on undocumented youth. The documentary is intended for all audiences, but with the accompanying lesson plan and resource guide for students and educators, it is especially useful in secondary classes.
