Without resorting to any background narration, Which Way Home raises questions about cross-border immigration policies and the macro-economic causes that propel people from struggling countries to stream into developed ones.

Despite the subject matter -- terrified children, many who haven't seen their families in years -- Cammisa never gets sentimental, and instead lets those closest to the subject do the talking.

Investigates illegal immigration and child labor in a very human way. We ride freight trains with teenagers trying to get to the US for a better life. Exceptionally effective verite filmmaking from Rebecca Cammisa.
