The short documentary, “Where There’s Growth, There’s Opportunity,” sets out to educate individuals on the significance of Hispanic population growth and how Hispanics in St. Louis are altering the cultural landscape and supplementing economic and demographic growth in a city where population has declined in the past decade.
Developed as a “True-Life” style documentary, the six-minute clip reveals stories and testimonials of the city’s Hispanic Americans and their professional development. This documentary avoids the cliché of struggling immigrants but that of American Hispanics who are making a positive impact as they attempt to build a stronger cultural presence in St. Louis, an otherwise non-Hispanic city.
Special thanks to those who participated in this mini-documentary.
