A compilation of short documentaries on the current undocumented immigration crisis touching topics such as The Wall, the effects of family separation at the border, deportation, and DACA. LANDFALL: As the U.S. currently reels over the consequences of separating parents and their children at the border, this film explores the lingering effects of this trauma on the relationship between a mother and her son who migrated from Colombia. WHAT WOULD YOU PACK? What would you pack in the suitcase of a loved one, if they were going to be deported? RETURNED: Three families who have been forced to return to Honduras, live in extremely violent conditions. Moving through the restless streets of the unstable capital city, and into the drama and determination of each family’s story, the film explores the experience of being returned to a familiar, yet increasingly unsafe situation due to the street’s gang control. ERASING THE BORDER: Mexican-American artist Ana Teresa Fernández imagines a creative way to make the US-Mexico border wall disappear. WHAT HAPPENS TO A DREAM DEFERRED: An intimate portrait of a day in the life of two DACA recipients, graduate students at Michigan State University whose lives were thrown into limbo after the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program was rescinded in September 2017.
