“American’t” is a story that aims to bring to the screen the struggle that many people faced in the United States during the era of former President Donald Trump, where racism, prejudice and injustice were the new normal. The ideals of Americans were attacked every day, things were happening that could never be imagined in a modern democracy, the new generation was being indoctrinated to hate anyone who was different from them. Geovanny Balderas was one of the few filmmakers to raise his hand and to denounce this type of injustice, doing it masterfully through the art of cinematography.
The main story of the film is about Alma, a loving, light-filled, first-generation Mexican-American woman, who lives happily with her undocumented parents in the countryside of the United States. Her life takes a 360-degree turn when she meets Johnny, an immigration agent (ICE), and two racist policemen who feel protected by the new system and constantly abuse police power.
Geovanny Balderas in 30 minutes tells a raw drama, but at the same time it’s a powerful piece of public awareness. Every detail in American’t is worth mentioning, production design, photography in spectacular locations, extremely realistic performances and a brilliant direction that makes it seem from real life.
American’t is looking for investors who can help to bring the feature film to life. We firmly believe that it’s only a matter of time for this film to be shown in movie theaters or on digital platforms.
