The Infiltrators is a docu-thriller that tells the true story of young immigrants arrested by Border Patrol, and put in a shadowy for-profit detention center on purpose. Marco and Viri are members of the National Immigrant Youth Alliance, a group of radical Dreamers who are on a mission to stop deportations. And the best place to stop deportations, they believe, is in detention. However, when Marco and Viri try to pull off their heist a kind of prison break in reverse things dont go according to plan. By weaving together documentary footage of the real infiltrators with scripted re-enactments of the events inside the detention center, The Infiltrators tells this incredible true story in a boundary-crossing new cinematic language.
The Hollywood Reporter said of the multiple award-winning film rather than feeling like homework, watching it is a thrill.
