This book is a collection of edited theoretical essays on the power of contemporary documentary film to voice the social agency of Latin American immigrants to the United States and Europe, and to reveal some of the global systemic conditions that generate mass migrations and lead to the dehumanization of undocumented immigrants. Linking the function of documentary to represent immigrants as performing agents whose voices generally are not heard publicly, this volume also features interviews with prominent documentarians whose films and videos respond to conditions of migration from a variety of perspectives.
