State Of The Arts: ‘Building The American Dream’ 12

Texas is home to some of the fastest growing metro areas in the nation, which means a construction boom across the state. In this week’s State of the Arts conversation, Chelsea Hernandez, the director of a new documentary about these workers, talks about the labor conditions they endure. And since 50 percent of construction workers are undocumented, we also talk about the difficulty of fighting for their rights.

The film, “Building the American Dream,” screens Friday and Saturday at 4:30 p.m. as part of the Dallas International Film Festival.

And be sure to check out the films we’re looking forward to the most this year.
