Welcome to this screening of The Undocumented co-presented by CAAM, Black Public Media, Latino Public Broadcasting, and Vision Maker Media.
We will be joined by filmmaker Marco Williams, and panelists from immigrant rights groups.
Border Patrol agents, Native Americans, smugglers, ranchers, retirees and Samaritans form a constellation of people engaged with the Arizona/Mexico border on a daily basis—policing it, working it or simply feeling its consequences. But at the center of it all is the migrant. This film tells the story of the migrants who die while trying to cross an unforgiving desert in search of a better life.
