Description

A riveting, hybrid docu-narrative that personalizes the struggles faced by the undocumented in this country, The Infiltrators is an unlikely blend of activism and suspense that makes a compelling case for the abolishment of ICE. Instead of fleeing in the other direction, members of the National Immigrant Youth Alliance purposely get themselves detained. Once inside a for-profit transitional center in Florida they work to help others, and document injustice while never losing sight of the human suffering caused by an inhumane system that separates families and imprisons people without trials. This hyper-captivating film keeps you on your toes, highlighting the courage and tenacity of young adults and reminding us the immigration issues that plague our country pre-date the current president and speak to the indelible stain of racism that infects our history and policy. Scheduled to Appear: Director Cristina Ibarra and Producer Darren Dean.
