Feature Films:

Border South
Dir. Raúl O. Paz-Pastrana
(United States / Mexico, 83 min., 2019, English; Spanish w/ English subtitles, Immigration)
Hundreds of thousands of immigrants, mostly from Central America, pass through Mexico every year on their way to the U.S. southern border. To stem the immigration tide, Mexico and the U.S. collaborate to crack down on migrants. Filmmaker Raúl O. Paz Pastrana spent four years following migrant routes from southern Mexico to the Mexico-United States border. The result is a close-up, nuanced, and highly original view of the migrant experience; one fraught with risk and danger but also comradery, ingenuity,  and humor. Also profiled is the Undocumented Migration Project, an effort to collect and catalog artifacts left behind by migrants in the Arizona desert speaking powerfully on behalf of those who seek a better life at an almost unbearable cost. Immigration Films Showcase.

Dear Homeland
Dir. Claudia Escobar
(United States, 57 min., 2020, English; Spanish w/ English subtitles, Documentary)
Dear Homeland tells the story of Mexican singer/songwriter Diana Gameros coming of age in the United States while finding her voice as an artist. Told in large part through her hauntingly beautiful music, her 20-year journey takes her from Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, to San Francisco, California, where we watch Diana assert herself as not only a musician but as an immigrant and an advocate for immigrant rights. Through music, she finds the courage to share her own story of being undocumented —channeling her fears and the weight of her separation from her family into powerful songs. Immigration Films Showcase.

The Infiltrators
Dir. Alex Rivera and Cristina Ibarra
(United States, 92 min., 2019, English w/ Spanish subtitles, Thriller / Immigration)
The Infiltrators is a docu-thriller that tells the true story of young immigrants who are detained by Border Patrol and thrown into a shadowy for-profit detention center—on purpose. Marco and Viri are members of the National Immigrant Youth Alliance, a group of radical DREAMers who are on a mission to stop unjust deportations. They believe the best place to stop deportations is in detention. However, when Marco and Viri attempt a daring reverse ‘prison break’, things don’t go according to plan. By weaving together documentary footage of the real infiltrators with re-enactments of the events inside the detention center, The Infiltrators tells an incredible and thrilling true story in a genre-defying new cinematic language. Immigration Films Showcase.

Your Iron Lady
Dir. Jorge Xolalpa, Jr.
(United States / Mexico, 95 min., 2020, Spanish w/ English subtitles; English, Drama)
A year in the life of Teresa: an immigrant mother of four who after being married for 22 years, decides to leave her abusive husband upon her arrival to the U.S. in 1998. Immigration Films Showcase.
