Migrantes: Bitácora de viaje.
Mauricio Andrada Bilche, 57min. México. 2013.*
Spanish with English subtitles
This documentary chronicles the journey of Central American (Guatemalan, Honduran, Salvadoran) migrants through Mexico from the eyes of a team of public health researchers. The film underlines the multiple health implications the dangerous journey implies for the people in movement. From skin conditions, trauma, bodily injures, malnutrition to HIV and other sexual transmitted diseases. The documentary underlies the lack of institutional presence in relation to public health and features the several “casas de migrantes;” ngo’s and informal operations along the road.
This film was produced by the Mexican Institute of Public Health.
