Out of the Shadows is a short documentary about Quinto Imperio, a Cumbia band from Chicago’s Back of the Yards neighbourhood. It is a story of immigrants who are undocumented, unapologetic, and unafraid to fight for their future and for the future of youth from a community that is often misunderstood.
