Borderland (4 x 60′) – A documentary series that follows ordinary Americans confronting the realities of illegal immigration.
Six Americans are tasked by the Pima County, Arizona medical examiner with retracing the footsteps of three deceased migrants – three of the 5,500 individuals who perished in the desert in the last 15 years while trying to cross from Mexico. Gathered at the morgue, the participants are told: “We’ve given them a name. You must give them a story.”
