In a context of xenophobic rhetoric, walls and deportations have focused national and international attention on the southern border of the United States. Academy Award nominee Which Way Home shows the personal side of migration across this border, through the eyes of children. Director Rebecca Cammisa follows several unaccompanied child migrants as they journey through Mexico en route to the U.S. on a freight train they call “The Beast.” These are stories of hope and courage, disappointment and sorrow. They are the ones you never hear about - the invisible ones. 90 minutes. Spanish with English subtitles. 

“…tremendous, eye-opening filmmaking…” — Erik Price, Esquire.com
