A feature documentary work in progress
Hacker House follows three ambitious, talented migrant entrepreneurs – two from Spain and one from Turkey – who have launched startups in Silicon Valley, the Mecca for high tech dreamers from all over the world. With a failure rate of 99.6%, their chances of survival are minimal, but each of them is willing to risk everything in order to chase their dreams. Remarkably, their families support them. Hacker House provides an urgent and timely new perspective and counterpoint to Trump’s America, which paints a vastly different portrait of the value and fortitude of migrants today.
