Which Way Home (1991)

Directed by
Carl Schultz

As the USA maintains a strict policy on immigration from Mexico, this documentary shows the personal side of immigration through the eyes of children who, with enormous courage and resourcefulness, face harrowing dangers as they endeavour to make it to America.

The film follows unaccompanied child migrants as they journey through Mexico on a freight train they call 'The Beast'. Rebecca Cammisa's film tracks the stories of children like Olga and Freddy, nine-year-old Hondurans who are desperately trying to reach their families in Minnesota; Jose, a ten-year-old El Salvadoran who has been abandoned by smugglers and ends up alone in a Mexican detention centre; and focuses on Kevin, a canny, streetwise 14-year-old Honduran, whose mother hopes that he will reach New York City and send money back to his family.
