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.

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.

Even without illustration or allusive images, the children's own descriptions are harrowing.

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.

Dramatically and pictorially pulls its weight.

A riveting documentary that taps into the same concept and themes of Sin Nombre, except it's all real and it's all heartbreaking to watch.

Foregrounds the idealistic vulnerability of the boys at its center, risking everything for a better life they can barely imagine.
