"Important art...This film offers a unique opportunity to understand immigrants, especially first-generation immigrants, torn between two worlds, as told through the eyes of Generation Z."
— Big Apple Film Festival
Beginning in 2016, six teens, all the children of Bangladeshi immigrants, agreed to embark on an extended project documenting their lives. What transpired over the next six years comprises Hudson, America. The film documents Mahmuda, Jahed, Ramisa, Saddique, Farzana, and Jabin as they navigate their faith, politics, education, sexual orientation, relationships with their parents, national identity, and more. An immersive and deeply felt epic that says as much about being a contemporary teen as it does about immigration and religion, Hudson, America is a vital examination of how Gen Z is entering adulthood and growing into themselves.
