Every year hundreds of thousands of migrants make their way along the trail running from southern Mexico to the US border. To stem the immigration tide, Mexico and the U.S. collaborate to crack down on migrants, forcing them into ever more dangerous territory.
BORDER SOUTH reveals the immigrants’ resilience, ingenuity, and humor as it exposes a global migration system that renders human beings invisible in life as well as death.
Produced by anthropologist Jason De Leon. De Leon’s work collecting objects left on the migrant’s trail forms the basis for the upcoming Emile Mathis Gallery exhibition Hostile Terrain 94. Jason De Leon will be coming to UWM in spring 2021 to speak as a part of the Letters and Science Distinguished Lecture Series.
