Film descriptions:

Children In No-Mans Land

dir. Anayansi Prado, 2008, USA, 42 min.

Children In No-Mans Land uncovers the current plight of the 100,000 unaccompanied minors entering the United States. As the children are caught by immigration authorities, they are held indefinitely in shelters, waiting for an adult relative to arrive with documentation to vouch for their identity. The film gives this timely political debate about the US-Mexico border a human face by exploring the stories of Maria de Jesus, 13 years old, and her cousin Ren, 12 years old, as they attempt enter the United States alone to reunite with their mothers in the Midwest. Focusing on the Sonora Desert area in Nogales, Arizona, this film explores these children's journey, as we uncover in an intimate way where they are coming from, what they have gone through to reunite with their families, and how they adjust to a new life in a foreign country.

Los hilos de la vida / The Threads of Life

dir. Lee Serrie, USA, 25 min.

A short film documenting Anderson Valley Adult School's Evenstart program, in which a group of immigrant women learned to use quilting to tell stories. The extraordinary detail in these collages of colorful fabric and embroidery illustrates their very personal life experiences, from the horrors of border crossings to life back in Mexico.
