A Visceral Portrait of Life at the U.S.-Mexico Border
Mar 15, 2016
In this short documentary, filmmaker Rodrigo Reyes re-works material from his award-winning feature film, Purgatorio, into an ode to the squalid borderland between the United States and Mexico. Beautifully shot and at times difficult to watch, the film confronts viewers with the hardships of the real human beings that exist at the very center of the debate on immigration.
The feature film, further chronicling the experience of life at the border, is available at www.rrcinema.com/watch.
