Director David Riker talks about his new film 'The Girl' with Vista LA
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Vista L.A. interviewed David Riker, director of "The Girl," which premiered in Los Angeles on Friday, March 16. Its intent is to turn the immigrant story upside down, and maybe make you question the American Dream. Is it just a myth?
We asked Riker how he came to make the film, and he told us what he thinks it is to be "American," why the "American Dream" seems elusive, and his thoughts on immigration reform.
