Watch: ‘North of Ojinaga’ is a Beautiful Meditation on Immigration

Why Watch? While calmly paced, every moment in Rommel Eclarinal‘s short film about a Chinese woman and Mexican man trying to get across the US border is engaging.

Beautifully shot with only the piano’s whisper of a score, it’s a contemplative but difficult journey to go on.

What will it cost? Only 23 minutes.
