Eagles (Aguilas)

Directed by Kristy Guevara-Flanagan, Maite Zubiaurre

Along the scorching southern desert border in Arizona, it is estimated that only one out of every five missing migrants are ever found. This film is the story of one group of searchers, the Aguilas del Desierto, themselves largely immigrant Latinos. Once a month these volunteers—construction workers, gardeners, domestic laborers by trade—set out to recover missing loved ones referred to them by word of mouth, phone calls, or Facebook messages.

A Shelter For Edith

Directed by Elisa Stone, Matthew Leahy

As the world grappled with pandemic isolation, Edith Espinal entered her third year of sanctuary in a Midwestern church. A Shelter for Edith sheds light on the solitary life of one undocumented woman and the threat that sent her indoors–not the pandemic, but the fear that ICE could tear her family apart.
