Critic Reviews for Which Way Home
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.
Foregrounds the idealistic vulnerability of the boys at its center, risking everything for a better life they can barely imagine.
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.
Audience Reviews for Which Way Home
'Which Way Home' is an incredible documentary that reveals some sincere insight into the journey that many Central Americans make: attempting to enter the United States. Heartfelt and magnificent, this film illustrates the demanding journey north in the most honest way I've ever seen.
A documentary which shows the other side of the cross-border immigration. Unlike most other documentaries, this movie is produced from the other side of the fence. "Which Way Home" could raise awareness to the average Americans that behind all the immigration debate, there are millions out there who are trying to get a chance at a better life.
