Feature Film humanizing entrepreneur and high-skilled immigrant issues to be screened in Capitol Hill, Washington DC.

A compelling and award-winning feature film, the first to put a human face on entrepreneur and high-skilled immigration problems in the U.S., will get a private screening on Capitol Hill this month.

"For Here or To Go?" uses persuasive story-telling to demonstrate how archaic immigration laws are preventing the U.S. from attracting and retaining skilled workers and entrepreneurs.
Set for 12 pm. Friday Sept. 2nd at the Rayburn House Office Building in Washington D.C., the screening is presented in cooperation with Washington Congressman Adam Smith, in partnership with Unshackled Ventures and Seattle immigration attorney Tahmina Watson, an author, blogger and radio show host.

The movie highlights policy obstacles in immigration law as well as the problems caused by the lack of a Startup Visa. And it demonstrates the need in this global economy for a more modern approach to immigration.
Screened in 16 cities and on four continents, For Here or To Go? has garnered praise from across the country.

“Rishi [Bhilawadikar] created a rich set of characters, interwoven storylines, and a powerful content – including the challenge of romantic relationships while having an uncertain future around one’s immigration status – that drew me in to the movie,” Brad Feld, renowned venture capitalist and founder of TechStars said in his review of this movie.

The goal of this invitation-only screening is to introduce this important film to members of Congress, staffers, grassroots advocacy organizations and the media in the hopes of drawing support for the issues raised and building partnerships around the work of immigration reform.

The screening will be followed by a short discussion with movie writer and producer Rishi Bhilawadikar. Refreshments will be provided.
