The Haunting of the Mexican Border is a woman’s view of the violence and generosity of the border. For fifteen years beginning in the 1980’s, Kathryn Ferguson made documentary films in Mexico’s Sierra Madre. As she traveled south, she encountered people who were traveling north, and she learned that the border at which they converged was deadly. And from coffee in her kitchen to her day in federal court, she learned how US immigration policies erode the life of an ordinary citizen.
