The film Trails of Hope and Terror, based on the book by the same name written by Miguel A. De La Torre, explores the plight of the undocumented Latin American immigrant from their perspectives. Through the stories of two young teenage girls – one a story of hope and the other a story of terror – the film explores how the present broken immigration laws creates oppression and repression. The film focuses on why we have an immigration problem, how the militarization of the borders creates abuse and death to many crossing borders, and how some, based on their religious convictions, stand in solidarity with the disenfranchised. This film is designed to unmask the underlining causes of the human rights violations occurring on our southern borders which the national immigration narrative ignores.
