Infiltrators Trailer

“I don’t pretend to have the answers here, but I know the issue isn’t being dealt with honestly in this country, and I see a film like The Infiltrators as an important tool in reframing the conversation.” – Peter Debruge, Variety


Screening through June 30th!

Without warning, Claudio Rojas is detained by ICE officials outside his Florida home. He is transferred to the Broward Transitional Center, a detention facility used as a holding space for imminent deportations. Terrified of never seeing him again, Claudio’s family contacts the National Immigrant Youth Alliance (NIYA), a group of activist Dreamers known for stopping deportations. Believing that no one is free as long as one is in detention, NIYA enlists Marco Saavedra to self-deport with the hopes of gaining access to the detention center and impeding Claudio’s expulsion. Once inside, Marco discovers a complex for-profit institution housing hundreds of multinational immigrants, all imprisoned without trial.

Cristina Ibarra and Alex Rivera (Sleep Dealer) design a hybrid cinematic language, combining familiar documentary form and scripted narrative to map an uncharted domain: inside an Obama-era immigration detention system. Based on true events, The Infiltrators is both a suspenseful account of a high-stakes mission and an emotionally charged portrait of visionary youth fighting for their community.

“In our current moment, The Infiltrators shows people making the best of a bad situation and finding ways to move forward both as individuals and toward greater common goals.” – Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times

Directed by Cristina Ibarra & Alex Rivera, 2019, USA, 95 minutes.
