The Other Side of Immigration asks why so many Mexicans have migrated the United States and what’s happened to the families and communities they’ve left behind. Based on a National Science Foundation-funded survey of 700 Mexican households, this award-winning documentary challenges audiences to think about the many political, economic, and social causes and effects of mass migration from the Mexican countryside. Dr. Roy Germano, the filmmaker and University of Chicago alumnus (A.M. ’03), will be in attendance to answer questions after the screening.
