“What Happens to a Dream Deferred” is an intimate portrait

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program on
Sept. 5, 2017.
Boehm is an assistant
professor of Spanish and global studies and affiliated faculty
in the Film Studies Program at Michigan State University as well
as the director of the MSU Latinx Film Festival. He studied
screenwriting at La Factoría del Guión in Madrid, Spain
and has worked as a script consultant on several films,
including “The Cliff” (Helena Taberna, 2016) and “Growing Up
Hmong at the Crossroads “(Safoi Babana-Hampton, 2017). More
