Welcome

Since 1998, more than two thousand dead bodies have been found in Arizona’s Sonora Desert—the remains of “border crossers” who perished en route to the United States. As Marcos Hernandez searches for his father, who vanished while walking through the Sonora, this cinéma vérité documentary exposes the little known consequences of current immigration policies.

Coming to Independent Lens: The Undocumented

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, inhabiting it, crossing it, working it, making it safer or simply feeling its consequences. But at the center of it all is the migrants, who sometimes die while trying to cross an unforgiving desert.
