Synopsis

Lizbeth Mateo is an attorney in Los Angeles-one who started a law practice, hired four employees, and took an oath to uphold the U.S. constitution. She also has no legal right to be in the country. Lizbeth is undocumented. Since crossing the border at age 14, Lizbeth hasn't let her immigration status hold her back. Frustrated by a broken system, she's drawing from her own experiences to fight for immigrant rights in the streets and in the courts. Her latest client is Edith Espinal, a woman avoiding deportation by taking sanctuary in a church. As the months turn to years, Lizbeth is running out of legal options to help. Lizbeth returns to her activist roots and teaches Edith to fight back-because sometimes you need to ignore the law in order to change it.

Why are people that dumb?

All current 18 reviews 10/10's and 9.2 rating? Like anyone is going to believe that lmao. Can the filmmakers make it any more obvious even they don't have any faith in their production to resort to such flagrant shill reviews? Guess not. Pathetic.

terrific film and great for classroom discussion and engagement

From my experience teaching high school, university students, and adult learners, I see the film Undocumented Lawyer as a fabulous tool for awakening critical consciousness. It is an engaging short documentary film that brings up challenging questions for the viewers. The accompanying guidebook provides an excellent framework to facilitate meaningful discussions, deeper learning, and ways to take action. Through the film, students are able to explore the pressing issues of today and find a compelling, inspirational, and powerful role model in Lizbeth.

One of my favorite shorts I've seen this year

This is a beautifully crafted story that gives unique access to an issue that's front an center in America right now.
