American Night: The Ballad of Juan José
By Richard Montoya
Directed by Kinan Valdez

In this wild satire, a Mexican immigrant has a feverish dream while studying for his American citizenship exam.

As Juan José feverishly studies for his citizenship exam, his obsession to pass takes him on a fantastical odyssey through U.S. history guided by a handful of unsung citizens who made courageous choices in some of the country's toughest times. American Night: The Ballad of Juan José is a provocative, irreverent, and hilarious mix of past and present, stereotype and truth.
