The Other Side of the Wall
aka Al otro lado del muro
First screened in October 2017
Director: Pau Ortiz. Documentary about four undocumented Honduran children staying afloat in Mexico City after their mother is sent to prison.

Twitter Capsule: Compact, prize-winning documentary more distinguished by moving tale than formal finesse. Enough for me!

VOR:   Can't hurt for as many viewers as possible to grasp the travails of undocumented kids, even if the theme has been handled more rigorously elsewhere.
