The Second Cooler, narrated by Martin Sheen, is a perspective changing migrant justice documentary. It is re-framing the debate about illegal immigration. It calls attention to the scandalously high number of migrants who have died crossing the US's southwestern border and the relationship of their deaths to free trade agreements and the militarization of the border. I want the deaths to stop. If you know about these deaths, you already want them to stop. If you don't, and you learn about them in this film, you will come away knowing what must be done. And you will question whether Comprehensive Immigration Reform will help or hurt the situation.
