The Other Side of Immigration

Nov. 17–18 | ASU Herberger Institute Press Release

Performance in the Borderlands opened its fall 2010 season with a screening of an award-winning documentary film, The Other Side of Immigration, on both the ASU Tempe and west campuses. The public also had an opportunity to meet filmmaker Roy Germano after both screenings during Q-and-A sessions. The Other Side of Immigration is based on more than 700 interviews with men and women from Mexico. The film explores why so many people leave small, Mexican towns to work in the United States, and what happens to the families and communities they leave behind. According to Tamara Underiner, ASU School of Theatre and Film professor and director of the Performance in the Borderlands initiative, the film seeks to promote understanding of “the other side” of the story. theothersideofimmigration.com
