Reader Giuseppe tells me there's another immigration-themed movie currently in theaters. It's called Under the Same Moon and here's a plot synopsis:

Nine-year-old Carlos aka Carlitos is one
of the countless children left behind by parents who come to the U.S.
seeking a way to provide for their families. His mother, Rosario, has
worked illegally as a domestic in Los Angeles for four years, sending
money home to her son and mother to give them a chance at a better
life. When the death of his grandmother leaves young Carlitos alone, he
takes his fate into his own hands and heads north across the border to
find his mother. As he journeys from his rural Mexican village to the
L.A. barrio, Carlitos faces seemingly insurmountable obstacles with a
steely determination and unfettered optimism that earn him the grudging
respect and affection of a reluctant protector, a middle-aged migrant
worker named Enrique. The unlikely pair finds its way from Tucson to
East L.A., but the only clue Carlitos has to his mother's whereabouts
is her description of the street corner from which she has called him
each Sunday for the last four years. Unaware that Rosario is only hours
away from returning to Mexico to be with her son, Carlitos and Enrique
desperately comb the vast unfamiliar city for a place he has seen only
in his imagination.

    let me add that in Europe, as well as in South America, the Governement usually finances the movie business, in particulary indipendent movie(In US the governement finances Bank who are close to bankuraptcy...)
    BBC has financed the Movie "Dirty Pretty Thing", which is a story about illigal immigration in UK, which means that the governement has financed the movie (as well as trainspotting) against their own law.

    Next year we can look forward to the national roll-out of the revolutionary WiMax technology. BusinessWeek calls Stanford University Professor Arogyaswami Paulraj the father of WiMax. You might want to consider him for your Immigrant of the Day column at an appropriate time.

    ..and if it is financed by the government, it must be a bad movie. Just take an anti's word for it.
