Creating The Forgotten Americans was a labor of love for filmmaker Hector Galán. Galán grew up in West Texas and has spent his career trying to document the rich history and culture of Hispanic Americans. While he worked on this project, Galán kept a journal to preserve his own experiences in making this film. Take a peek at his thoughts:
