Product Overview

Filmmaker Arturo Perez Torres follows 2 friends traveling on an extraordinary and extremely dangerous journey from Central America to North America. They encounter gangs and vigilantes as well as border patrol. These immigrants navigate real-life nightmares with calm, grace and even humor in their perilous pursuit of a better life. While most Americans are aware of the growing population of migrant workers and illegal immigrants, few truly understand why so many put their lives at risk to come to this country. Wetback provides access to exclusive footage and gives us a window into the experience and, more importantly, gives insights into why people feel this way.

Reviews
ReviewSource Variety
Review Engrossing Canadian-produced docu "Wetback" hits the ground running alongside migrants fleeing poverty in Central America for the (North) "American Dream"; pic points out that only about 300 of the estimated 3,000 who leave every day will actually make it to their destination...One heartbreaking sequence is shot in a hospital ward full of those who've lost limbs falling from the sides of cargo train cars, which hundreds of travelers cling to every day...Allowing for inevitable verite rough edges (especially in nocturnal lensing), package is well-honed, with sharp editing and a good use of music.
