In 2006, a historic mobilization for immigrant rights swept the USA as millions took the streets. Mainstream news media predictably covered the marches with a mix of surprise, ignorance, and racism, yet grassroots media activists were there to document the voices and the stories behind this mass movement.
!Gigante Despierta! is a DVD compilation of compelling short films from all around the country.
It is a collective memory and a tool to inspire action every MayDay, when the Giant will raise its voice again to say: we are one people, without borders. We are here, and we are here to stay!
