The Infiltrators: Filmmaker Reception: Meet the filmmakers of the award winning new film followed by a screening.
Reception | October 16 | 5:30-6:15 p.m. | Latinx Research Center
Alex Rivera, Co-Director, The Infiltrators
Directors Cristina Ibarra (in her Sundance debut) and Alex Rivera (Sleep Dealer, 2008 Sundance Film Festival) design a hybrid cinematic language, combining familiar documentary form and scripted narrative to map an uncharted domain: inside an Obama-era immigration detention system. Based on true events, The Infiltrators is both a suspenseful account of a high-stakes mission and an emotionally charged portrait of visionary youth fighting for their community.
