Finding your mom–immigrant kids crossing the border

Last year the film La Misma Luna (Under the same Moon) offered a fictionalized account of a young boy crossing the U.S. Mexico border in search of his mother in Los Angeles. It’s a heartwarming, albeit harrowing story where we see a pre-teen boy make his way north, escaping what could be extremely dangerous circumstances.

That is fiction. The soon to be released Which Way Home is a documentary that explores child immigrants in their journey to the U.S.

The film was premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival this summer, and will air on HBO on Monday, August 31.
