¡Alambrista!

Directed by Robert M. Young
United States, 1977
Drama

Synopsis

Vivid and spare where other films about illegal immigration might sentimentalize, Young’s take on the subject is equal parts intimate character study and gripping road movie, a political work that never loses sight of the complex man at its center.
