"EXODUS" DOCUMENTARY PROJECT
Binational Arts Institute (BNAI) and Onirica Productions, in collaboration with Centro de Atención al Migrante “Exodus” (CAME) are producing a feature length film on about the migrant experience and the ecosystem that arises, told through the migrant shelter CAME in Agua Prieta (AP), Mexico as a focal point.
The film visualizes the lived-realities and daily struggles of shelter workers from the border communities of AP and Douglas (Arizona) who work together in a hostile and dangerous climate of mafia violence and unsympathetic immigration US and Mexican authorities to serve a third diverse community – families and individuals from Mexico and Latin America seeking refugee in the US due to forced migration and involuntary displacement.
This project will give voice to the people who have become entangled in the tremendous humanitarian crisis to create humane discussion around issues of seeking asylum. It witnesses the generosity and selflessness of the bi-national shelter workers who work tirelessly to provide a brief respite for the migrants and refugees; thus making the wall “disappear” and creating a bond of solidarity between both cities.
