Which Way Home

Rebecca Cammisa

USA, Documentary, 2009
83 min, HD Cam, Color

As the United States continues to build a wall between itself and Mexico, Which Way Home shows the personal side of immigration through the eyes of young Central American and Mexican children who face harrowing dangers with enormous courage and resourcefulness as they endeavor to make it to the United States on freight trains. The film is a gripping documentary about a situation that adults should never have to endure, let alone children. Which Way Home was an Academy Award nominee for Best Feature Documentary.
