From Marco Williams, the filmmaker of TV documentaries such as Banished: How Whites Drove Blacks Out of Town in America, I Sit Where I Want: The Legacy of Brown v. Board of Education and MLK Boulevard, comes The Undocumented, a documentary about Mexican immigrants perishing as they attempt crossing the border through the Arizona desert, and how it directly relates to the United States Immigration Law. The Documentary has raised $22,721 out of $75,000 with 18 days left. Check out the Kickstarter campaign page HERE for more information and to support the film.

From the Kickstarter page:

The Undocumented, is a documentary I am making which exposes the little known consequence of current United States immigration policy—the annual recovery of dead bodies and skeletal remains of those who attempt to cross into the United States through the Sonora desert. The film documents border patrol agents who fight to prevent migrant deaths, medical investigators and the Mexican consulate who work to identify dead border crossers, and Mexican families who struggle to accept the loss of a family member.
Unlike other documentaries, my film does not engage in a passive dialogue. Those depicted in the film don’t merely talk about migrant deaths; they are immersed in it. They patrol the desert. They wheel body after body in and out of a refrigerated storage room. They look for clues to an identity. They speak to distressed family members. They relay sobering news of a loved ones death.

Migrant deaths along the United States – Mexico border since 2001 exceed US troop deaths in Afghanistan over the same period of time. Yet the issue remains largely invisible, the topic muted or silent. This silence is absolutely “an accomplice to injustice” for the more than 2000 men, women, and children who have died along Arizona’s border in the last ten years.

I have a long track record of producing social documentary films that address injustice and contribute to a national dialogue about the issues that define us and shape our American identity. The Undocumented continues this commitment. Rather than advocate a solution to the problem of illegal immigration, the film aims to facilitate dialogue by presenting the unique experiences of the men and women who confront migrant deaths regularly.
