Child Aliens

The memorizing photographs by Don Bartelli of Central American immigrants traveling  illegally on freight trains bound for the US caught my attention six years ago.  Since then Sonia Nazario has written the account of one such traveler – a young teen from Hondoras – who travels north via trains in hopes of reuniting with his mother. And now a heart-wrenching documentary captures the situation of several children on their journey northward. The film, Which Way Home, is a stunning portrayal of the determination of these children to reach the so-called promised land of Los Estados Unidos.
