Common Ground, is now streaming on Rooster Teeth FIRST, which is available to view on Apple TV, Xbox, AppleTV, and Roku devices. Featuring the personal journey of Gus Sorola, a founder of gaming entertainment company Rooster Teeth along with interviews with investigative reporters from the Texas Tribune, immigration attorneys, border patrol agents and immigrants themselves, ‘Common Ground’ seeks to find an intelligent way to talk about immigration without succumbing to familiar political narratives. The Austin Chronicle observes that the film ‘takes the politics out of the border.’ For the first seven days of release, the film is streaming free, then goes back to being FIRST subscriber-only. Watch it now.

The Austin Chronicle has written a review / interview here and a blurb here.
