WORLD PREMIERE Set on the border between Colombia and Venezuela, the film navigates a complex and urgent narrative as deftly as its subjects navigate the perilous terrain around them. Español and Barrabas, two “coyotes,” or human smugglers, go about the business of surviving despite all the odds against them, as the directors’ quiet observational technique gets at why people make the life-threatening choice to migrate. Gritty, uncompromising, and thought provoking. – Murtada Elfadl
