Stories We've Helped Tell

When we "offcially" started Deep Focus Cinema in late 2010 we were already in the think of our first feature length documentary film " The Immigration Paradox". What has happend since has been extraordinary! We finished our first feature despite many odds and challenges stacked against us. From selling our car to help fund the journey, to fearing for our lives in isolated desert locations averting wild coyotes and putting ourselves in situations that most people would avoid all together.

The lessons have been plentiful, the triumphs sweet. We had the honor of experiencing a Red Carpet Premiere with over 800+ attendees in the oldest operating theater in Phoenix-The Orpheum. Though the wealth of our experience has been from the completion of "The Immigration Paradox" we have slowly started taking that experience and helping others leverage our wisdom and passion for story telling to tell their stories.

From our Embracing Humanity "Listen" video that shares various perspectives on the art and importance of listening in a "hip" and engaging manner; to our well recieved Barrio Works short "Buy a Barrio Bike" that illustrates how a simple concept can have huge long term impact on a community.

We take on limited projects that we believe in and focus on conveying them in a cinematic fashion that entertains and engages viewers. With so many stories that deserve to be shared we are only getting started and with each project we enrich our community as well as grow stronger as a production house.

Tells us what your needs are and we'll help uncover the humanity in your story.

The Immigration Paradox
Possibly one of the most important films of the Century.

This series of conversation starters will help leaders and community members have in-depth conversations regarding immigration reform in the U.S. and what it means to various people directly and indirectly affected by any laws passed. The interviews and information presented here are excerpts from the feature length documentary film The Immigration Paradox as well as additional content that was excluded from the Theatrical version.

In this video we interview several tea party members (Tom Jenney, Lynne, Joanne Hawes), a think tank (Angela Kelley) and a director of programs at an immigrant farmer non-profit (Flor Redondo).

THE IMMIGRATION PARADOX takes a critical and in depth look at one of the most divisive issues in human global history--immigration. After encountering an immigrant crossing the Arizona desert, Emmy Award Winner and Filmmaker Lourdes Lee Vasquez set out to understand why people would risk their lives to come to the U.S.. Her quest takes a shocking twist when she musters enough courage to cross the line at a protest and has an encounter with whom she believed was her enemy.

From there on her journey, spanning 7 years searching for answers and solutions to this complex social issue, takes her and the audience to places never before considered in the immigration debate. THE IMMIGRATION PARADOX is a feature length documentary that exposes the missing information to the immigration issue by interviewing an array of people from various backgrounds, which include economics, sociology, philosophy, history, policy, and activism. This documentary will move you beyond the villain or victim scenario, the heated rhetoric and sensationalism to reveal the bigger picture.

No matter what your viewpoints or beliefs are regarding this deeply emotional issue; the information exposed in THE IMMIGRATION PARADOX will surely leave you shocked.
