"I Built This" - "Esto yo lo hice"

This I built - Esto yo lo hice

This I built - Esto yo lo hice


“Esto yo lo hice” is a documentary film that tells the story of a special category of working-class men and women who, without official permission or public recognition, build our modern world. They form the day labor community – essential workers who keep our cities alive and functioning.

It is a film in which a group of laborers from different economic sectors and with different world views share how their lives and work sustain a city, how their music keeps a city from falling silent, how their work helps keep a city standing proudly and assures that politicians have appropriate facilities in Washington, D.C.
