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

E Haku Inoa: To Weave A Name
E Haku Inoa: To Weave a Name takes a deep look at the importance of culturally minded care in the field of behavioral health and how easy it is for providers and trainers to take their own cultural biases for granted. The film touches upon how women and families can find themselves caught up in the child welfare system that does not always have proper cultural training and can cause unintentional damage through separation of families.The film also illustrates connections between the cultural suppression of indigenous people and the mental and social repercussions that still resonate through subsequent generations.
