Witness at the Border

Film Synopsis:

American volunteers in Matamoros, Mexico are the only lifeline for Central American asylum-seekers caught between two governments hostile to their situation. As the U.S. asylum courts deny their claims and the Mexican government takes daily steps to make camp life difficult, the refugees and volunteers hang on together waiting for justice.

Witness at the Border is the sequel to our prize-winning documentary Witness at Tornillo. The film is in production now and is expected to released Fall of 2020.
