Movies That Matter-Latino will screen Building the American Dream at 4 p.m. Sunday, June 19, at Rose Marine Theater, 1440 N. Main St., home of Artes de la Rosa Fort Worth Cultural Center.

Building the American Dream (2016, not rated, 75 minutes) captures a turning point as a movement forms to fight widespread construction industry injustices. Grieving their son, a Mexican family campaigns for a life-and-death safety ordinance. A Salvadorian electrician couple owed thousands in back pay fights for their children’s future. A bereaved son battles to protect others from his family’s preventable tragedy. A story of courage, resilience and community, the film reveals shocking truths about the hardworking immigrants who build the American Dream, from which they are excluded.
