South Side Projections and Casa Michoacán present the second film in a series about undocumented immigrants that is running February through June at locations around the south side. The series is sponsored by Contratiempo, Center for Latin American Studies at the University of Chicago, and the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts.

The Other Side of Immigration (Roy Germano, 2009, 55 min., DVD)
Based on over 700 interviews in Mexican towns where about half the population has left to work in the United States, The Other Side of Immigration asks why so many Mexicans come to the U.S. and what happens to the families and communities they leave behind. Through an approach that is both subtle and thought-provoking, this documentary provides a perspective on undocumented immigration rarely witnessed by American eyes, challenging audiences to imagine more creative and effective solutions.

El Otro Lado de la Inmigración (Roy Germano, 2009, 55 min., DVD)
Basado en más de 700 entrevistas en ciudades mexicanas donde aproximadamente la mitad de la población se ha ido a trabajar a los Estados Unidos, The Other Side of Immigration pregunta por qué tantos mexicanos vienen a los EE. UU. Y qué les sucede a las familias y comunidades que dejan atrás. A través de un enfoque que es a la vez sutil y estimulante, este documental proporciona una perspectiva sobre la inmigración indocumentada rara vez presenciada por los ojos estadounidenses, desafiando a las audiencias a imaginar soluciones más creativas y efectivas.
