Trailer for the short film "La Caminata":

A small town south of the Mexican border decides to take control of their own community and stem the tide of migration to the US. This short documentary film chronicles their unique solution to stopping the exodus: the creation of a theme-park event, a simulated border crossing complete with fake 'border patrol' and balaclava-clad coyotes and guides. The event employs many community members and raises awareness of the struggles and dangers migrants endure.

Through a 'journey' across the border and a poetic exploration of the town itself, this film details the effect of migration on Mexican communities and adds a fresh perspective to the ongoing immigration debate.

The film was directed by Jamie Meltzer, the filmmaker behind Off the Charts: the Song-Poem Story and Welcome to Nollywood.
