“A riveting documentary that taps into the same concept and themes of Sin Nombre, except it's all real and it's all heartbreaking to watch.” – Erik Davis, CINEMATICAL
Tucson Samaritans is proud to present Which Way Home, the Oscar-nominated documentary that follows unaccompanied children from Mexico and Central America on their dangerous journey north to reunite with their families in the United States. Director Rebecca Cammisa (Sister Helen) tracks the stories of children like Olga and Freddy, 9-year old Hondurans desperately trying to reach their families in Minnesota, Jose, a 10-year-old El Salvadoran who has been abandoned by smugglers and ends up alone in a Mexican detention center, and Kevin, a determined 14-year-old Honduran who hopes to reach New York City and send money back to his family. It is dedicated to two cousins from Mexico, Eloy and Rosario, who died in the Tucson Sector.
