Editorial Reviews

Product Description

EL INMIGRANTE is a documentary film that examines the Mexican and American border crisis by telling the story of Eusebio de Haro a young Mexican migrant who was shot and killed during his journey north. The film presents a distinct humanitarian focus in which story and character take precedent over policy and empiricism. Towards this end "El Inmigrante" examines the perspectives of a diverse cast of players in this border narrative. A cast which includes the de Haro family, the community of Brackettville, Texas-where Eusebio was shot, members of vigilante border militias in Arizona, the horseback border patrol in El Paso, and migrants en route to an uncertain future.

Review

What distinguishes El Inmigrante is less the dramatic shooting death and miscarriage of justice at its center than the unusual sensitivity and openness of filmmakers John Sheedy, David Eckenrode and John Eckenrode to the distinctive rhythms and belief systems of people on both sides of the border. Arrestingly composed docuTech credits are superior, Sheedy's DV lensing particularly impressive. --Ronnie Scheib, Variety

a very human view of a politically charged situation. The viewer gains a fascinating, inside lookawesome cinematography as well. Highly recommended --Richard Van Busack, San Jose Metro

Smartly elegiac... --Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
