dir. Marco Williams, USA, Mexico, 2013, 88 min.

Director Marco Williams in person.

In the loud and contentious debate over immigration, there are voices that will never be heard — those of the more than 2,500 border crossers who have perished in the vast wasteland between Sonora, Mexico and Tucson, Arizona over the last fifteen years. The Undocumented tells the story of these migrants who died while trying to cross an unforgiving desert in search of a better life, and follows them on their long journey home, shining a light on an often-forgotten but very human side of the ongoing national conversation about immigration reform.

Marco Williams is a filmmaker and a film educator. His directing credits include Inside the New Black Panthers; Banished; Freedom Summer; I Sit Where I Want: The Legacy of Brown v. Board of Education; MLK Boulevard: The Concrete Dream; Two Towns of Jasper; Making Peace: Rebuilding our Communities; The Pursuit of Happiness: With Arianna Huffington; Without a Pass; In Search of Our Fathers; and From Harlem to Harvard. Williams is an Arts Professor at New York University at The Kanbar Institute Tisch School of the Arts, Undergraduate Department of Film and Television. He is the Area Head of Documentary Production.
