This is a moving documentary about the incredible struggles of people from Central America trying to immigrate to make some money in the empire that has caused them so much harm. Films such as When the Mountains Tremble and Men With Guns give people an idea of the suffering the U.S. has inflicted on this region, complete with funding murderous dictators, training forces in the 'School of the Americas' School of Assassins: Guns, Greed, and Globalization, and organizing death squads. Additionally, economic policies emanating from Wall Street and D.C. also grind the people of Latin America down Latin America: From Colonization to Globalization.
'De Nadie' includes a segment on people who work in solidarity with immigrants, such as the women of La Patron. Maybe this film will inspire others to send money in support of groups that are daily working to ease the suffering of 'the least among us.'

Innocent Voices The gangs that are spoken about in 'De Nadie' come out of the brutal forces the U.S. organized and trained. I met a person who was in El Salvador's army, and he talked about how cutting off [...] was a common tactic. And it's a tactic now being used against some of these economic refugees.

This is very hard to watch at times and shows the experiences of people who have had to struggle and suffer in order to better their situations. This speaks to the desperate measures taken at desperate times.

This shocking documentary depicts the difficult journey and struggle of immigrants trying to make it to the US through Mexico and Central America. It provides troubling insight into the abuses suffered at the hands of Mexican authorities. No surprise it won at the Sundance Film Festival.

For music lovers, the incredible soundtrack alone is worth the purchase.

I purchased this movie to show during the immigration unit in an upper level Spanish class. The students are most definitely moved by the stories it tells.

I collect documentary films - I now own over four hundred- and very few of them have touched me like this one. It is incredibly heartbreaking but it will put your life in perspective. Although the movie has some minor technical flaws, the stories told here are worth every minute of your time and every penny.

De NadieAs I am a social work student this film left quite an impact. The horrors these immigrants face just to reach Mexico are remarkable. I recommend this film to any one who thinks they know what is going on. I thought I did, but after viewing this film i obviously do not. Heartbreaking at times, but informative. Excellent in all ways

I made a mistake thought this would have English subtitles so can't really tell you much about the movie.

Bad video, bad music, bad over all. I thought I was buying a movie but this is some kind of beyond low budget homemade documentary.

This was a good movie but it was to slow moving and it just kept dragging on.
