ABOUT THE FILM
Mexico and the United States crack down on the trails north, forcing immigrants into more dangerous territory. Told against the backdrop of the North American migrant trail, ‘Border South’ weaves together migrant stories of resilience and survival from different vantage points. The film exposes a global migration system that renders human beings invisible in life as well as death.
“Gut-wrenching intimacy…BORDER SOUTH personifies the statistics of failed U.S. immigration policy.” Dr. Peter Laufer, Chair, Journalism, University of Oregon
“Compassionate…Vivid…We receive the message strongly that these are ordinary people expected to do extraordinary things…This is skillful film-making, not to present the migrants as heroes, but just as people with mundane plans and dreams like the rest of us.”
