“The Other Side of Immigration” is a documentary based on interviews with men and women in the Mexican countryside. The film explores why so many people leave small Mexican towns to work in the United States and what happens to the families and communities they leave behind. This film has screened at dozens of universities, conferences, and film festivals in the U.S. and Europe since 2009.
