The first thing that sticks out about El Inmigrante is how frank and open the subjects on both sides of the issue are. You’ll find a sad, honest film – the kind the immigration debate needs more of.
• Scott Moore, Portland Mercury
…inspired, intimate portrait of a growing crisis at the border separating the United States and Mexico. In examining a hot-button political issue, the film is careful never to lose sight of the human side of the story.
