“The Lost City”

Ever heard of Candelaria, Texas? Neither have I.

“Imagine you lived in a small town and then imagine you couldn’t travel more then a few miles from that town. This is the problem that the residents of Candelaria, Texas face every single day. The only reason they live there is to send their children off to school on the U.S. side, because the school on the Mexican side is in complete shambles. The closest town with a grocery store is one hour away and for fear of deportation they cannot even travel to buy food. They must rely on anyone who is willing to help them. Most of the men work on the Mexican side but their wages are so small that most families have 4, 5, or even 6 people living in small trailers made only for a couple of people.”

Alberto Garcia along with a group of filmmakers and Producers are looking to develop a small documentary on Candelaria and the hardships the undocumented residents of the small community encounter on a daily basis.

They call it “Lost City”, an independent documentary about the hardships of the people of Candelaria, TX. Undocumented and trapped in their own town.

Alberto Garcia was the creator of the film, “An American Dream”.

“Three years ago I started a film called An American Dream a movie about the immigration debate raging in the United States. Two years after I began the film it was picked up by The Documentary Channel and aired every month for 2 years across the United States. It was viewed by more then 500,000 people, our voice about immigration was heard. Now with my small crew I want to repeat that process with this new movie called The Lost City, our voice can and will be heard across the country.”
