Episode Details

Original tape date: September 5, 2018.

First aired: September 13, 2018.

We kick off this episode in Queens with Catalina Cruz, the first DREAMer that aspires to get a seat at the New York State Assembly in the coming elections. Catalina talks about her mother, her role model and inspiration, the head of her family, who fought to give her a better life despite being an illegal.

Afterwards, we'll see Carmen Boullosa, who, with the celebration of the Conference on the Historical Links between Spain and North America organized by the Instituto Cervantes and the City College Division of Interdisciplinary Studies, interviews Julio Cañero Serrano, head of the Franklin Institute at the Universidad de Alcalá, and one of the most famous specialists in the relationships between Spain and the U.S. and in the history of Hispanics in this country.
Then, we follow Antonio Tizapa around the city. He's the father of one of the 43 students from the Ayotzinapa school that disappeared 4 years ago in Iguala, Guerrero.
Together with a group of athletes and activists, through marathons and demonstrations, he fights to prevent this case of forced disappearances from going unpunished and being forgotten.

As a preview of the second season of the docu-fiction series "I Am a Dreamer," we'll see five previews and two new characters. Through their everyday life and artistic, political, and personal projects, we try to show the experience of migrants in New York.
