For many, Chicago was not always “home.” In the early twentieth century, African Americans seeking to leave the racial climate of the American South behind and Mexican migrants seeking work far north of the border joined European migrants new to the city. Today, one out of seven residents of the state of Illinois is an immigrant; almost 34% of those migrants, who come from all over the world, live in Chicago.

WE ALL WE GOT

Carlos Javier Ortiz
(USA, 2015, 9 mins), Colorado Premiere

A stunning, heartbreaking, visual poem. In the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement and the country’s recent focus on youth violence, police brutality, and marginalized communities, We All We Got is an elegy of urban America, and an intimate portrait of the people affected by gun violence in Chicago.
