Green Card, a Short Documentary About a Bangladeshi Immigrant That Writes Songs While Driving a Cab in Brooklyn

Green Card is a short documentary profile of Mohammad Rahman, a convenience store owner from Bangladesh that lives and works in Williamsburg. In addition to the store, Rahman also drives cabs, and writes songs while doing do. Green Card is one of these songs.

Prompted by homesickness, Mohammed began writing songs while driving a taxi in New York City and has since recorded three CDs of his music. The film follows him as he works the overnight shift in his store, and features a performance of his song "Green Card" by his neighbor, a young musician of Bangladeshi descent.

Rahman's song addresses the difficulties and sorrows many immigrant workers face after coming to the United States seeking a better life.
