The Other Side of Immigration

“Most original presentation of a current political issue”

Based on over 700 interviews, The Other Side of Immigration asks why so many Mexicans leave home to work in the United States and what happens to the families and communities they leave behind. Through an approach that is both subtle and thought provoking, The Other Side of Immigration challenges audiences to imagine more creative and effective solutions to our immigration problem. Filmmaker Roy Germano holds a Ph.D. in political science from the University of Texas at Austin. He has conducted extensive research in the Mexican countryside with support from the National Science Foundation. The Other Side of Immigrationemerged from his research. Learn more.

“The Other Side of Immigration does more than any other work to give people otherwise disparaged as ‘threatening’ and ‘illegal’ a human face and to reveal the devastating personal effects of U.S. immigration and economic policies on our closest neighbors.” – Douglas S. Massey, Princeton University

“The Other Side of Immigration is an intelligent, thought-provoking, beautiful, and caring look at the costs of policies in Mexico and the United States that lead to illegal immigration by so many. It is an understatement to say that the film has made me think…”  –  Liza Finkel, Portland State University

“I recommend The Other Side of Immigration with enthusiasm for a wide range of audiences, including community groups, higher education institutions, public schools, and policy makers.”  – Scott Fletcher, Lewis & Clark College
