Film Screening: 'The Infiltrators'
"The Infiltrators" is a docu-thriller that tells the true story of young immigrants who intentionally get arrested by Border Patrol and put in a shadowy for-profit detention center. Marco and Viri are members of the National Immigrant Youth Alliance, a group of radical Dreamers who are on a mission to stop deportations. And the best place to stop deportations, they believe, is in detention. By weaving together documentary footage of the real infiltrators with scripted re-enactments of the events inside the detention center, the film tells this incredible true story in a boundary-crossing new cinematic language. Following the screening is a Q&A with directors Cristina Ibarra and Alex Rivera.
