Event Description

Award-winning The Other Side of Immigration(55 min, 2009) is based on interviews with men and women in the Mexican countryside. It explores why so many people leave small Mexican towns to work in the U.S. and what happens to the families and communities they leave behind. By understanding "the other side" of the story, we can begin to think about new and more creative ways that the U.S. and Mexican governments can work together to develop new solutions.

Another award winner, Locked in a Box--Rediscovering our Humanity in Immigration Detention (24 min, 2015), traces the lives of individuals who fled their homelands in search of safety and freedom only to end up in U.S. prisons. The film portrays the experience of people detained in the U.S. Immigration prison system and of those visiting them.
