Frontier Youth

A valid video file was found, or could not be loaded!

Ray, Ariel, and Alondra are young people growing up in Agua Prieta, Mexico, and Douglas, Arizona, neighboring border towns defined by undocumented migration and a militarized border. Frontier Youth transcends the political debates, focusing instead on the personal stories of its protagonists,  each of whom is profoundly marked by American immigration and border policies. Through their perspectives, the film examines the challenges of bi-cultural youth; as security along the border continues to tighten, they enter adulthood with inseparable ties to both sides.

"Frontier Youth is a moving and subtly provocative film that puts a human face on the questions of immigration and border enforcement. After seeing Kane's film, all students will have a fuller appreciation for the heart-wrenching consequences of our immigration policies and practices."
– Gary Segura, Professor of Political Science, Stanford University
