Destination America( Visual )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 1,082 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documentary is organized around some of the driving forces that have compelled individuals to immigrate to America for centuries and have remained constant throughout history - economic opportunity, religious freedom, and artistic expression. As well, the series looks at the particular forces that drive women to come to America in search of opportunity and the basic human rights they had been denied in their homelands. Contemporary stories are the centerpiece of each episode, along with historic portraits of immigrants who came before. The past and present day experiences of immigrants resonate with each other. To say goodbye to everything you have known and loved and set off for another country has always been a wrenching experience. The films focus on the world the immigrants left behind, the roots that defined them, and the frustrations, hardships, discontents, and ambitions that made and continues to make America their destination
