Film details


Border mechanisms that act on migrants are many.  Moving from shelter to shelter and hopping on trains, they head up north across Mexico to reach the United States and Canada. During the U.S election, migrants are more than aware that it could be their last chance to cross the border.
Following their trajectory, Destierros draws a path of reclusion. A path where time remains the longest road between two places.
