A groundbreaking documentary that takes a heartfelt look at the emotional journey of a group of African Americans who called it quits in the U.S. to start a new life in South Africa. With 4 to 5 million immigrants coming to America every year to pursue the American dream why are they leaving? BLACKS WITHOUT BORDERS answers that question and more…the film chronicles 12 modern-day globetrotters who have uprooted their lives in pursuit of their dreams and are finding that America is not the only land of opportunity. After two trips to South Africa and over 50 hours of HD footage, the film provides a candid and touching tale of sacrifice, hardship and great rewards by U.S. born citizens such as Cora Vaughn, a Chicago attorney who walked away from a million dollar a year law practice to open up a bed & breakfast up the street from Nelson Mandela, James Prevost who came to South Africa with nothing and revolutionized the comedy industry, Charles Henderson heroin addict at age 16 now Harvard graduate helps blacks and whites deal with the emotional turmoil caused by Apartheid and Jose Bright gave up his high-profiled law practice in Washington, DC to help kids orphaned by the HIV/AIDS pandemic. One of his biggest supporters is Oprah Winfrey. BLACKS WITHOUT BORDERS examines the trials and tribulations that come along with being an outsider in a foreign land… dealing with "xenophobia" to adjusting to the cultural differences to combating the negative perceptions that America now garners around the world. From great sacrifice comes even greater rewards, this film reveals the incredible lifestyle these worldly go-getters now live. BLACKS WITHOUT BORDERS is a tell-all, "no-holds-barred" film that brings a whole new perspective to living your ultimate life. 72 mins
