Based on the groundbreaking book by award-winning journalist and Democracy Now co-host, Juan González, this film reveals the direct connection between the long history of U.S. intervention in Latin America, and immigration today.
Featuring real-life stories and rare archival footage, the movie examines the events and conditions that have led millions of Latino families to leave their homelands in an unprecedented wave of migration over the last six decades. From the wars for territorial expansion to the covert operations that imposed oppressive military regimes, it unveils a story largely unknown to most U.S. citizens.
Some graphic violence. Not recommended for children.
