Lyft - Nine Numbers
“Jesus didn’t have a social security number”
Cesar grew up in Alabama and didn’t find out he was undocumented until he was a teenager. Suddenly all his dreams were put on hold. As a DACA recipient, a program the Trump administration has tried to end, Cesar’s future is still uncertain. “I feel like an Alabama football fan. They have season tickets, their man cave is full of ‘Bama stuff, but most of them don’t have an Alabama degree. I have everything American: I have a house, I have a car, a great job, but I just don’t have that diploma — that citizenship.” Cesar has found comfort in his faith, but not everyone in his church community is supportive. Since Trump’s election, he has received messages from other churchgoers and pastors telling him he’s living in sin and should return to Mexico.
“Nine Numbers” is part of “America is an Idea, Not a Geography," created by Even/Odd for Lyft
Film directed by Andrew Batista & Mohammad Gorjestani.
