Summary Beyond Borders : It moves past the headlines and takes an in-depth look at the hot-button issues of legal and illegal immigration. Beyond Borders explores the psychological forces driving the immigration controversy from both sides of the debate. Anti-immigration activists demand we stop this "illegal alien invasion," while some pro-immigration forces speak of a Reconquista, a reclaiming of the American Southwest by Mexico. In search of a middle ground, Beyond Borders travels across the U.S. and beyond to give voices to those on the front-line of this issue, including candid interviews with Border Patrol agents, radio celebrities, demographers, the Minute Men, potential migrants, and a host of experts including Noam Chomsky (Distorted Morality) and Gustavo Arellano (Ask A Mexican). Beyond Borders is an entertaining and enlightening film that asks: Is migration a basic human right?" -- producer website.
Escapeland : Escapeland follows a love story that develops against-all-odds between Eshel, a young Israeli woman from a kibbutz and Adel, a Sudanese Muslim, a UN refugee, who is not allowed entry into Israel. The couple has two children, and for years now Eshel is forced to constantly travel between a remote beach in Sinai (Egypt) where Adel lives and works, and her mother's home in Kibbutz Ein-Shemer. The family shifts between hope for a future together, and despair about the economic and bureaucratic obstacles.
