Programmer's Notes

We at the AoDR Festival are honored to screen this important story. Immigration policies don’t just hurt immigrants; when used broadly, as they are in many countries, they can harm a lot of people. Until we learn to treat immigrants with more compassion, their lives are going to continue to be full of impossible life or death decisions.
