Subject: [ChildImmigration] PLEASE TUNE IN! "WHICH WAY HOME" airs - Monday, August 24th 2009 on HBO
The National Center for Refugee & Immigrant Children , in partnership with “Which Way Home,” encourages you to watch this powerful HBO documentary about unaccompanied immigrant children this Monday August 24th at 9pm ET/PT.
The HBO documentary “Which Way Home” follows several unaccompanied child migrants as they journey through Mexico en route to the U.S. on a freight train they call “The Beast.” Director Rebecca Cammisa (Sister Helen) tracks the stories of children like Olga and Freddy, nine-year old Hondurans who are desperately trying to reach their families in Minnesota, and Jose, a ten-year-old El Salvadoran who has been abandoned by smugglers and ends up alone in a Mexican detention center, and focuses on Kevin, a canny, streetwise 14-year-old Honduran, whose mother hopes that he will reach New York City and send money back to his family. These are stories of hope and courage, disappointment and sorrow.
The film will also be screened at the 2009 On Their Own conference in Washington DC, during the conference reception at the Embassy of Finland. Director Rebecca Cammisa will be present for remarks and questions. Likely, conference participants will also receive copies of the film.
