Event

Opening Night: The Infiltrators
Winner of the audience award and Innovator Award at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.

Without warning, Claudio Rojas is detained by ICE officials outside his Florida home. He is transferred to the Broward Transitional Center, a detention facility used as a holding space for imminent deportations. Terrified of never seeing him again, Claudios family contacts the National Immigrant Youth Alliance (NIYA), a group of activist Dreamers known for stopping deportations. Believing that no one is free as long as one is in detention, NIYA enlists Marco Saavedra to self-deport with the hopes of gaining access to the detention center and impeding Claudios expulsion. Once inside, Marco discovers a complex for-profit institution housing hundreds of multinational immigrants, all imprisoned without trial. Wife and husband Cristina Ibarra (in her Sundance debut) and Alex Rivera (SLEEP DEALER, 2008 Sundance Film Festival) design a hybrid cinematic language, combining familiar documentary form and scripted narrative to map an uncharted domain: inside an Obama-era immigration detention system. Based on true events, THE INFILTRATORS is both a suspenseful account of a high-stakes mission and an emotionally charged portrait of visionary youth fighting for their community.

* Directors and special guests present for screening.
