Documentary: The Whole World Waiting

The 2012 documentary “The Whole World Waiting” follows 15 immigrant high schoolers in Maine, including Congolese immigrant Emmanuel Muya.

“Back in the Congo, we heard rumors that America is paradise — where everything is perfect, money flows like water, you can eat as much as you want, whenever you want, you can get anything,” says Muya in the film.
