    Sombras is a poetic reflection and examination of the effects of living undocumented in the U.S. Using archival footage to explore the psychological toll that “illegal” status imparts upon different generations, the film invites us to contemplate the full weight of the terms “illegal” and “alien” and the stigmas forced upon the immigrant class.
