El Inmigrante is a film about the American and Mexican border crisis. Eusebio de Haro, a young Mexican border crosser is shot and killed by a Brackettville, Texas resident who claims to have fired in self-defense. This event becomes the point of departure for a far more complicated border story. The cast of this film is diverse, including Eusebio's family in Mexico, the community of Brackettville, Texas, the horseback border patrol in El Paso and other migrants en route to the United States. Their perspectives come together to create a moving political commentary, far more humane than didactic.
El Inmigrante is being presented as part of the Impact Festival.
