The film crew has all access and rides the rails with our protagonists. We see every different aspect and result of the journey within "Which Way Home," and this completeness to the story really distinguishes the film. There is a boy who barely survived a desert crossing to live with his grandmother in America. There is a boy who crosses the border to get detained in Houston at a juvenile center before his deportation. There are kids that are caught by Mexican immigration and sent home. There are kids who disappear completely. And there are kids who don't survive the journey. If it sounds unpleasant, it certainly can be! The resilience and hopefulness never seems to fade, however, even in the direst of circumstances.Read more ›
story, much greater than we ever thought possible. Several months ago I saw the movie Sin Nombre and was astounded at what many of the immigrants had endured in attempting to come to this country, even though it was fictional. After that, I accidentally learned that one of my female students had come from Ecuador and traveled for two months, alone, to get here. She has no relatives in the country and is basically alone. Fortunately, she is an adult and attends night school to get her high school education.
As I was watching this documentary I felt I was watching Sin Nombre as many of the scenes and actions were identical. This film is an eye opener and I recommend it to everyone interested in the immigration issue.
