The 5 Best Border Films

Immigration is a hot button topic these days. Arizona’s notorious SB 1070 immigration law paved the way for states like Georgia and Alabama to implement their own laws—albeit all of them are being fought out in federal court right now. As the debate and protests over racial profiling and deportations heats up, another fantastic film is giving us a different perspective on the debate.  

A Better Life, starring Demian Bichir, is hitting theaters tomorrow and we thought it would be interesting to showcase some of the movies that we think best capture the reasons people risk their lives to come to this country.
