A glimpse of the frenetic beauty of the choreography of Andonis Foniadokis, as the renown dancers of the Martha Graham Dance Company work hard to learn a different dance vernacular than the one they're trained to do.
Directed by Marco Williams (Banished, Two Towns of Jasper), "The Undocumented" investigates the deaths of undocumented migrants along the US-Mexico border and the efforts made to identify them and repatriate their remains back to Mexico.
The film is woven from multiple narrative threads. In Arizona, it depicts the efforts of the Pima County Medical Examiner and the Mexican Consulate of Tucson to name unidentified dead border crossers with the ultimate goal of returning them to their families. It also follows US Border Patrol Search and Rescue (BORSTAR) agents, who must balance law enforcement with lifesaving. In Mexico, the film documents the reunification of the dead with their families and chronicles stories of loved ones who disappeared while crossing the border, never to be heard from again.
Through these interconnected narratives the film dissects a US immigration policy which is at best flawed and at worst bankrupt.
