ELLIS - watch the trailer!

2015 Sep 29 - 05:50

Discover the trailer for ELLIS, a short film starring Robert De Niro, written by Eric Roth, directed by JR.

The short narrative film, ELLIS, awakens our collective memory. Leaving their past behind them, immigrants fleeing poverty, discrimination, dictatorship arrived there. Ellis Island was the gateway to the United States for millions of immigrants. Upon arrival, they were processed, approved or denied access. Due to sickness or simply tiredness, many were placed in the hospital. A purgatory of sorts, in the shadow of the Statue of Liberty, where thousands of men, women and children awaited their fate.
