120 Days, an important and personal film about undocumented families
120 Days captures an intimate, inside look at the lives of one family of undocumented immigrants who have been living and working in the United States illegally for over twelve years. An immigration judge grants Miguel 120 days to get his affairs in order before he is returned to Mexico. The film documents Miguel’s last days in the USA as he weighs his options of returning to Mexico alone, or changing his name and disappearing into another U.S. city illegally to keep his family together. In understanding their perspective, a lot can be learned about not only their plight, but also the same decisions that face millions of immigrants in America everyday. A discussion afterward will highlight the current situation for undocumented and ways individuals can take action. Link to film’s website:

Some review blurbs:

"120 Days is a ‘Must See’ Brilliant, Absorbing Film" Sarah Adamson,

"Roach gets astonishingly close to Cortes and his family" Dan Lybarger, The Pitch

"Not only should 120 Days be required viewing for every American — and most especially those who view the world through the Fox News lens — but this film is also a powerful teaching tool that would help the next generation of young Americans better understand the immigration debate from a middle ground uncolored by polarizing media spin." Sezin Koehler, HuffPost

"120 Days throws an affecting spotlight on the personal side of immigration" Brent Simon, Los Angeles Film Critics Association
