Oddly enough, the film, which has a Sept. 3 release date, was shot a year or so ago and happens to touch on the very same controversial immigration issues that currently have much of the country up in arms. Watch it and let me know what you think!

In the meantime, be on the lookout for his upcoming film, "Predators." Here's a video I shot with Robert at this year's SXSW Interactive Festival where we spoke about the film being released July 9th:
