Bolivian Artist Sam Villegas Seeks to Find the American Dream Through Film

Can an artist find the American Dream? Our latest What Matters event featured a creator who is here to find out.

Commercial filmmaker Sam Villegas moved to the United States from Bolivia to attend Taylor University five years ago. After graduating with a degree in film, he found work as a video marketer in the suburbs of Chicago. He’s now facing the reality that his visa may not be renewed in the coming weeks, even with his employer offering to sponsor him.
