An award-winning documentary
about Mexican immigration by Roy Germano, Ph.D.
About the film
Based on over 700 interviews in Mexican towns where about half the population has left to work in the United States, THE OTHER SIDE OF IMMIGRATION asks why so many Mexicans come to the U.S. and what happens to the families and communities they leave behind. Through an approach that is both subtle and thought-provoking, researcher and filmmaker Roy Germano provides a perspective on undocumented immigration rarely witnessed by American eyes, challenging audiences to imagine more creative binational solutions to the immigration issue. Winner of the American Library Association Notable Video Award and Official Selection at dozens of universities, film festivals, high schools, public libraries, health clinics, conferences, and public institutions, including Princeton, MIT, NYU, the University of Chicago, the American Museum of Natural History, and many more.
