Watch: ‘North of Ojinaga’ is a Beautiful Meditation on Immigration

By  · Published on June 28th, 2012

Why Watch? While calmly paced, every moment in Rommel Eclarinal’s short film about a Chinese woman and Mexican man trying to get across the US border is engaging. Like Sin Nombre, North of Ojinaga quietly explores the intensity and anguish that crossing the desert into the Promised Land brings for illegal immigrants.

Beautifully shot with only the piano’s whisper of a score, it’s a contemplative but difficult journey to go on.

What will it cost? Only 23 minutes.
