Synopsis: THE INFILTRATORS is a docu-thriller 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. 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.
“The Infiltrators takes a unique stylistic approach to an important topic, leaving audiences with a viewing experience that demands — and rewards — attention.”
Rotten Tomatoes Critics Consensus
“Equal parts journalistic expose and taut drama, and one hundred percent cinema.”
Christopher Llewellyn Reed, HAMMER TO NAIL
“In our current moment, “The Infiltrators” shows people making the best of a bad situation and finding ways to move forward both as individuals and toward greater common goals.”
