At a time when the immigration debate is at a fever pitch and immigrants are framed by statistics and policy discussions, we believe it’s important to give a voice to those most affected by this issue.
Portrait of a Dreamer is the story of Fidencio Fifeld-Perez, an undocumented artist who came to the US at age seven. Through his curiosity about the actual route he took to come to America, he developed a passion for working with maps as part of the medium for his expression.
In this film, we see a glimpse of Fidencio’s experience as a DACA Dreamer who decided to complete the iconic George Washington Athenaeum portrait on the dollar bill.
It was done by TBD Advertising, San Francisco advertising agency.
The Famous Athenaeum portrait of George Washington used on the dollar bill was painted in 1796.
It was left unfinished.
Fidencio Fifield-Perez, a DACA recipient, decided to finish it.
It takes us all to make us whole
