The 'Dead in the Desert' Documentary Is Online

Posted By on Mon, Aug 19, 2013 at 11:00 AM

It's definitely not a pleasant watch, but the Dead in the Desert documentary by Austin Counts and Devlin Houser is now on YouTube.

From Hope Miller's article on the documentary's release party:

Dead in the Desert documents how Pima County medical investigators attempted to identify and repatriate the bodies of two migrants found in June 2011—one in Arivaca, and the other on the Tohono O'odham Nation.

The film also shows how migrants prepare to cross the Arizona-Sonora border, offers a snapshot of a northern Mexican town that depends on migrants, and highlights a humanitarian-aid group that provides water stations for migrants crossing the desert.
