Letters from the Other Side

With Heather Courtney

Letters from the Other Side interweaves video letters carried across the U.S.-Mexico border by the film’s director with the personal stories of women left behind in post-NAFTA Mexico, giving voice to four amazing women who feel the effects of failed immigration and trade policies on a daily basis. Focusing on a side of the immigration story rarely told by the media or touched upon in our national debate, Letters offers a fresh perspective, painting a complex portrait of families torn apart by economics, communities dying at the hands of globalization, and governments incapable or unwilling to do anything about it.


“A much-needed examination of the collateral damage of illegal immigration… sensitive… effective and emotionally potent.”

– John Anderson, Variety

“Impressively thorough… painful and honest.”

Austin Chronicle

“Behind all the political rhetoric, Letters shows the real lives affected by failed trade and immigration policies, giving voice to people who deserve to be heard.”

– Richard Linklater, Director: A Scanner Darkly, Fast Food Nation
