THE GUARDIAN OF MEMORY
(El guardián de la memoria)

The Guardian of Memory bears witness to the violence that has displaced thousands, while examining how governments on both sides of the border have exacerbated the crisis. With striking visual poetry, director Marcela Arteaga provides intimate accounts of the lives Mexican migrants have left behind, while also highlighting the work of Carlos Spector, an immigration lawyer from El Paso, who fights to obtain asylum for those fleeing the violence.  – Variety
