In this new video below, Chris Loken explains the impetus for the making of his movie “Fighting For Freedom” — a story of immigrants denied the American Dream on LoveApple Farm, Hudson Valley, New York.
Mr. Antonio Villaraigosa, the previous two-term mayor of Los Angeles, made the following comment after the speech:
“Chris Loken's heart wrenching story of his family’s journey from Norway to America depicted a voyage filled with the hope and promises that so many have had before and after. A dream shattered when they lost the small farm they had worked so hard to own. An experience that led him to fight for the immigrants on his own fruit farm whose story was not that much different than his own.”
