American Made:  Union Built (2019) was created through the Our Community Voices Program, Dodge College of Film and Media Arts at Chapman University.  It presents a look at today's labor union movement.

Jacinta Filiaci is an Indonesian-American now residing in California.  She has always been interested in working on social issues which lead her to creating this short documentary on Labor Unions with a talented team while a university student.  The labor organizers inspired her so much that she is now training to become a labor rep at Laborers International Union of North America (LIUNA).

Daniela (Dany) Zavala is a first generation American from Orange County, California.  Their interest in labor politics/organization started out as a passion for issues of inequity.  This led to their involvement with a short documentary film about American labor unions, in their fourth year of undergraduate studies.  One of their biggest focuses is on alternative business models, specifically worker self-directed enterprises or worker cooperatives.
