Oscilloscope released the new trailer for The Infiltrators, the docu-thriller from directors Alex Rivera and Cristina Ibarra that tells the true story of young immigrants who are detained by Border Patrol and thrown into a shadowy for-profit detention center- on purpose.
The Infiltrators, winner of multiple awards including – Audience Award, Sundance Film Festival; Best of NEXT, Sundance Film Festival; Best Documentary Feature, Blackstar Film Festival; Rogue Award, Ashland Independent Film Festival and Best U.S. Latinx Film, Cinema Tropical Awards, opens in theaters on March 27 in NY and April 3 in LA.
Marco and Viri are members of the National Immigrant Youth Alliance, a group of radical DREAMers who are on a mission to stop unjust deportations. And the best place to stop deportations, they believe, is in detention. However, when Marco and Viri attempt a daring reverse ‘prison break,’ things don’t go according to plan. By weaving together documentary footage of the real infiltrators with re-enactments of the events inside the detention center, The Infiltrators tells an incredible and thrilling true story in a genre-defying new cinematic language.
