Summary
International border crossing as a daily constant is an unusual life habit. Especially when Mexican urban dwellers do so to work as agricultural field laborers in the United States. In a time when immigration has taken the political center stage across the globe, El field contributes to the discussion by providing a compelling portrait in motion of the life, work and industry of a forgotten section of the largest, busiest land transit border in the world. Shot in the Imperial Valley, California, and the Mexicali Valley, Mexico; El field presents visual historic information that induces the audience to form their own impressions on migrant labor and the industry that employs them. Filmmaker: Alejandro Davila, Daniel Rosas, Derrick Sparrow.
