Restaurateurs who were saved from bankruptcy by luck, an actress balancing passion with a 9-5, a former undocumented immigrant who clung to music, a victim of PayDay loan schemes, and a financial adviser working to bridge the black/white wealth gap are the featured subjects of this week’s Re:Dream videos.
Re:Dream is an immersive, digital-first project taking a look at what it
means to “make it” in the 21st century. Forty micro-documentaries from five different cities
tell the stories of individuals as they prepare for success, meet obstacles, and pursue their American dream.
The nationwide project, led by Kansas City Public Television (KCPT), is produced by fifteen PBS member stations.
Re:Dream aims to bolster community dialogue around the changing landscape of available opportunities in the 21st century economy.
