Netflix premiers documentary about immigrants attaining citizenship
"Out of Many, One"
See the trailor here.
The following description comes from VOD News:
“I hereby declare on oath I will support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” That’s the sound of someone swearing the oath of citizenship in the USA, a country made up of people coming to America to form a united nation. And it’s that tradition and identity that Netflix is celebrating in its new short documentary.
It takes its title from the national motto, “E Pluribus Unum”: Out of Many, One. And, with one in five of the world’s immigrants choosing the USA as their new home, it follows five immigrants who are on their journey to obtain US citizenship,. The film depicts some of the many threads that continue to weave the tapestry that is America, which, true to its founding identity, the United States is still a nation of immigrants.
Currently facing a time of deep political, social, and cultural divide, immigration itself has become a divisive issue. The Netflix original film illustrates how a common understanding of our shared history and US democracy is essential to constructive debate, informed civic participation and shaping a new class of American citizens to be eager stewards of our democracy and how one organisation has used their mission to help pave the way, with a little help from Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
