Immigration Up Close: trailer for Maria in Nobody’s Land

MARIA IN NOBODY’S LAND is an unprecedented and intimate look at the illegal and extremely dangerous journey of three Salvadoran women to the United States, through Mexican territory. Doña Inés, a 60 year old woman, has been looking for her daughter for five years and is following the same route her daughter took while crossing Mexico en route to the United States. Marta and Sandra, tired of the violence from their husbands and wanting to overcome poverty, decide to leave their families behind to travel to America – with only thirty dollars in their pockets. During their harrowing journey, the three women encounter prostitution, slave trade, rape, kidnap and even death, all in an unwavering quest for a better life.
