SYNOPSIS

La historia verdadera de un inmigrante mexicano y su luche entre la vida y la muerte en el cruce de la fronteraa la tierra prometida. El Inmigrante es un filme documental que examina la crisis de la frontera entre Estados Unidos y Mexico a traves de la historia de Eusebio de Haro un joven inmigrante Mexicano que fue balaceado y muerto durante su travesia hacia el norte. Lo que distinge a ‘El Inmigrante’ no es tanto la dramatica muerre y el mal uso de la justicia come centro de la historia, sino lo inusual de la sensiblidad y la apertura de criterio de los cineastas a los diferentes ritmos y formas de creencias de las personas en ambos lados de la frontera.” (Variety)

What distinguishes “El Inmigrante” is less the dramatic shooting death and miscarriage of justice at its center than the unusual sensitivity and openness of filmmakers John Sheedy, David Eckenrode and John Eckenrode to the distinctive rhythms and belief systems of people on both sides of the border. Arrestingly composed docu…Tech credits are superior, Sheedy’s DV lensing particularly impressive.
 Ronnie Scheib, Variety

David and John Eckenrode create a poignant expose… They took a complicated political issue and made it human.
• San Miguel Atencion

…a very human view of a politically charged situation. The viewer gains a fascinating, inside look…awesome cinematography as well.

Highly Recommended…
• Richard Van Busack, San Jose Metro

Smartly elegiac…
• Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post

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 documentary 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.
