The Hamilton Mixtape - 'K'naan ft. Snow Tha Product, Riz Ahmed & Residente' - Immigrants (We Get The Job Done) Directed by Tomas Whitmore
Grammy, Emmy, Tony, and Pulitzer Prize-winning artistic pioneer Lin-Manuel Miranda joins forces with Executive Producer Robert Rodriguez and breakout Director Tomás Whitmore of Diktator to create a stunning and timely music video for the hit song, “Immigrants (We Get The Job Done)”.
The video, filmed entirely on trains, uses conceptual and compelling vignettes to highlight various aspects of the immigrant experience. From cramped living quarters, to border crossings, Syrian air strikes to daily working life, we are immersed in the struggles of those seeking the promise of a better life.
“To make a film that empowers and honors the migrant narrative in an inclusive manner has been nothing short of transformative for everyone involved,” Tomás says. “Our hope is that the film can convey the notion that human mobility is the cornerstone of human history, and ultimately, act as a reminder that we are all on this journey together.”
