]Team Love is very happy to distribute Roy Germano’s fantastic documentary, “The Other Side of Immigration”! Based on over 700 interviews in Mexican towns where about half the population has left to work in the United States, THE OTHER SIDE OF IMMIGRATION asks why so many Mexicans come to the U.S. and what happens to the families and communities they leave behind. Through an approach that is both subtle and thought-provoking, filmmaker Roy Germano provides a perspective on undocumented immigration rarely witnessed by American eyes, challenging audiences to imagine more creative and effective solutions to the problem.
Since its premiere at the Las Vegas Film Festival in April 2009, THE OTHER SIDE OF IMMIGRATION has screened at over 50 film festivals, universities, and community events in the U.S. and Europe. The film won the Founders Award at Politics on Film, Washington DC’s political film festival, and features music by My Morning Jacket, Conor Oberst, and Bright Eyes.
