Directed by Chantal Akerman | 2002
“A spare, painterly and scrupulously unsentimental look at the plight of illegal Mexican immigrants massed at the United States border.”
—Dave Kehr, The New York Times

Akerman’s powerful documentary bears witness to life at the Mexican-US border, where on one side, undocumented immigrants risk everything to cross into America, and on the other, hostile residents try zealously to keep them out. As always, Akerman’s camera is as interested in place as it is in people; her evocative images of landscapes and stunning tracking shots communicate more than words. An Icarus Films release.
