Trails of Hope and Terror

  • overview

    To mark Hispanic Heritage month, author and screenwriter Dr. Miguel de la Torre will show his award winning documentary Trails of Hope and Terror. The film details the struggles of people crossing the border and shares the historical context of how political events led to a system of “prevention through deterrence.” The filmmakers traveled to the U.S. border five times to walk in the desert and interview humanitarian groups, social workers, undocumented immigrants and protesters.
