      El Valley Centro

      Released Jan 23, 2000 1 hr. 30 min. Documentary List
      Reviews In this experimental documentary, filmmaker James Benning reveals the human cost behind America's longstanding debate on immigration.

It's here that much of the nation's produce is grown, and also where thousands of undocumented workers are being neglected each day. Without being overly preachy, Benning creates a powerful political commentary on immigration in America. Read More Read Less
