Abstract:

"A 53-minute documentary that ends with the stories of two teenage girls, Sandra and Josseline. One encounters the border (La Frontera) by accident, and the other on purpose. But their journeys, along with the others we hear about in the film, began hundreds of years ago, as complicated political and economic strategies set up a vast system from which there is little hope of escape. Manifeset Destiny, the Mexican-American War, Gun-Boat Diplomacy, Banana Republics, NAFTA, Operation Gatekeeper ... all of these political events led up to a system of "prevention through deterrence." In other words, if people were forced to cross a desert in where they were likely to die, then they might think twice about the risks. The fact is, no one was deterred. In Trails of Hope and Terror, [you] will hear stories about the people whose families needed them. At the time, they felt it was the right thing to do. So they crossed anyway"--Movie website.
