Through The Wall

Short Documentary Shows Very Real Effects Of Immigration

Through The Wall is a short documentary about a family that’s been split up because of mixed immigration statuses.  In five short minutes director Tim Nackashi is able to convey just the sense of despair, helplessness, and hope that comes with immigration challenges.

Abril and her 2 year old boy Julián are living undocumented in America. Julián’s father Uriel was stopped by police for a minor traffic ticket and was deported back to Mexico, where he now lives. In order to see each other, Uriel, Abril and Julián must cross difficult terrain to reach the border fence where they spend time together through the wall.

Through The Wall shows what it’s like when a family is split up and is forced to live with a wall in-between them.  Perhaps, the saddest part is the realization that this reality is normal for the 2 year old boy.  This is his life.
