"Beyond Borders: Undocumented Mexican Americans" examines U.S. policy decisions that triggered the rise of undocumented immigration in a deeply moving documentary that explores the under-reported lives of Mexicans living and raising families in the United States.
The film carefully explains the history of the relationship between the two countries - Mexico and America - some of which may be unfamiliar to viewers.
In telling the stories of several undocumented Mexican Americans, "Beyond Borders" reveals the reasons why millions of Mexican workers have settled in the U.S. over the past four decades instead of returning home.
It also illuminates the remarkable networks that connect the film's characters with the families they left behind, and the very real human impact of the anti-immigration backlash now sweeping the country.
