The Trail North


Narrated by Martin Sheen and filmed on location in Baja, California, this half-hour documentary provides a personal view of the history of Mexican immigration to the United States. Based on the work of anthropologist Dr. Robert Alvarez, the film follows Alvarez and his 10-year-old son, Luis, as they recreate the journey which their family’s ancestors made in coming north from Mexico a number of generations ago.
