The Invisibles | Trailer by Gael García Bernal and Marc Silver


Driven from home by insecurity and grinding poverty, thousands of Central American migrants travel through Mexico every year in hopes of reaching the United States. But all too often, their dreams turn into nightmares. Without legal protection, they are vulnerable to criminal gangs who target them for kidnapping, rape, and murder. "The Invisibles," tells the stories of those who make the journey north through Mexico — one of the most dangerous in the world. 25 minutes. Spanish with English subtitles.
