The filmmaker spent four years following migrant routes from southern Mexico to the US - Mexico border, where years of tightening controls have pushed people onto ever more precarious routes. The result is a close-up, nuanced and highly original view of the migrant experience, one fraught with risk and danger but also camaraderie, ingenuity and humour.

The screening will be followed by Q&A with academics including Paolo Novak from SOAS Development Studies Department.
