Which Way Home

Which Way Home

(83 minutes) Mexico/USA

Tuesday, 10/26, 4:20pm (Session XII)

Director/Producer: Rebecca Cammisa


As the United States continues to build a wall between itself and Mexico, Which Way Home shows the personal side of immigration through the eyes of children who face harrowing dangers with enormous courage and resourcefulness as they endeavor to make it to the United States. The film follows several unaccompanied child migrants as they journey through Mexico en route to the US on a freight train they call "The Beast." The filmmaker tracks the stories of children like Olga and Freddy, 9-year-old Hondurans who are desperately trying to reach their families in Minnesota, and Jose, a 10-year-old El Salvadoran who has been abandoned by smugglers and ends up alone in a Mexican detention center. The film focuses on Kevin, a canny, streetwise 14-year-old Honduran, whose mother hopes that he will reach New York City and send money back to his family. These are stories of hope and courage, disappointment and sorrow. They are the ones you never hear about—the invisible ones.


Rebecca Cammisa made the switch to documentary filmmaking after a thirteen year career as a documentary photographer. In 1998, after she was awarded the New York Foundation for the Arts Photography Fellowship for her work in Madagascar, she co-produced and co-directed a segment on Sister Helen for PBS/Channel 13. In 2003, Rebecca founded Documentress Films, and received development support from the Sundance Documentary Fund, HBO, the Wellspring Foundation, and the J. William Fulbright Fellowship in Filmmaking for Which Way Home. Rebecca is a member of the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
