From The Other Side

Akerman, Chantal (director)
Year Published:  2003

Resource Type:  Film/Video

The border between the United States and Mexico is the backdrop for Chantal Akerman's look into tightening immigration policies. Technology has limited illegal immigration into San Diego, diverting it to the Arizona border. Akerman jumps back and forth from the Mexican city of Agua Prieta to Douglas, Ariz., to demonstrate the harrowing journey some hopeful immigrants make. Many of these travelers never arrive, and Akerman speaks with their families as well as with American authorities.
