In this commentary, the author discusses the use of film as a pedagogical tool to foster crosscultural dialogue and increase civic engagement while nurturing student voice. The LIFE through My Eyes project, a filmmaking and human rights program, was developed in response to a hate crime on Long Island in 2008. Through this project, immigrant students employ their talents as digital natives to share and document their own life narratives.
