News & Interviews for Immigration Nation: Miniseries
Offers a wrenching look into the callousness and ambiguity present in the ways those laws are enforced.
Immigration Nation offers a more complete picture than anything we've seen before on immigration in the Trump era.
Christina Clusiau and Shaul Schwarz, have been granted access other filmmakers could only dream of. Not many images are ever released from inside ICE detention centers, but Clusiau and Schwarz talk to the detainees.
As taxing to watch as it is, one can appreciate the quality and purposeful vision of the craftsmanship. While there are static interviews, a large portion of the footage was capture as tense situations unfolded.
A useful parable to enable the layman's understanding of, as human rights attorney Becca Heller eloquently explains, "the brilliance of any bureaucratic system whose net result is fear and trauma."
'Immigration Nation' is most effective in its first three episodes. But, as mentioned previously, its greatest strength is in the way that it humanises those individuals that the system seeks to dehumanise.
This series is most threatening to the present administration not because it employs a rhetoric too powerful to be ignored, but because it is fair, thorough, and true.
It puts names and faces to people that the White House has tried to turn into an anonymous brown blur.
Immigration Nation transports viewers inside detention centers and ICE field offices across the country, and even into Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. But it's the stories of the victims, torn from their children and parents, that prove the most haunting.
Immigration Nation does pull back the scope to show the institutional forces at play here: namely, the farce of our current system of legal immigration, but also the ways capitalism incentivizes the dehumanization of undocumented immigrants.
Audience Reviews for Immigration Nation: Miniseries
Oct 13, 2020This series is biased and doesn't examine the issue fully. It felt like an attempt to push a point of view on the audience.
Sep 11, 2020Inaccurate, full of propaganda and mistruths.
Sep 09, 2020Laws are made to treat everyone equally but now we see how it treats people when the authority in charge is violent and blind.
Aug 29, 2020I don't know why is the audience very mixed. I loved this show.
Aug 17, 2020This inside look into ICE and our immigration system will break your heart. A must-see.
Aug 17, 2020The realities of the American Dream. It feels surreal to watch in 2020 this was the country that represented freedom, now it has become the antithesis of that.
Aug 16, 2020It's fine, I don't have anything to say.
Aug 15, 2020A cold and cruel way to show what's going on in "the land of freedom ". It's terrifying the way how these guys from ICE deal with people, literally like cattle. Shame !!! So sad.
Aug 10, 2020Okay, do some of these reviewers understand that if you support the message of the series, you shouldn't give low ratings. Most of us will agree that what is going on with ICE is disgusting and tragic. ICE deserves NO stars but this show was amazing and deserves five stars. Very hard to watch and just devastating. But it gave an intimate look into what actually happens behind closed doors during the process of deportation. A must see.
Aug 10, 2020I think hearing and reading about immigration issues is not enough. You need to see it. No matter which side of the fence you are on in the way this administration has handled the matter
