This film takes you to the unforgiving US-Mexican border. You will see a local mortuary where skulls and bodies of  the men, women, children that weren't fortunate enough to experience the "American Dream." You will meet the mourning families that will never see their loved ones again. This is a must see for everyone that has the slightest interest in what these poverty-stricken, mexican migrants endure.



According to PBS.org, “In true cinéma vérité style, The Undocumented by Marco Williams reveals the ongoing impact of immigration laws and economic policies on the very people who continue to be affected by them. By going beyond politics, the film also tells a story that is deeply personal.” 

Admission for the screening is only $20, and all the ticket proceeds benefit Border Action Network, Coalicion de Derechos Humanos, and Humane Borders. The director Marcos Williams will be at the event doing a Q & A and discussion about the deaths on the US-Mexican Border. Click here to RSVP on the Facebook event page, or click here to purchase your tickets in advance on the Loft website.
