This powerful neorealist tapestry, shot in black and white, presents four stories of Latin American immigrants in New York, each experiencing various forms of endemic hardship: whether financial exploitation, missing papers, or sheer disorientation. Opened at the Quad in October 1999. “Gives faces to the faceless and is not easily forgotten” (Roger Ebert).

A film by David Riker
