Description: 'Mojados: Through the Night' is an eye-opening documentary filmed over the course of 10 days that follows four men into the desperate world of illegal immigration. Alongside Bear, Tiger, Handsome, and Old Man, director Tommy Davis takes a 120-mile cross-desert journey that has been traveled innumerable times by nameless immigrants who -- like these four young migrants from Michoacan, Mexico -- all had the simple, American dream for a better future. Davis brings to life the often unheard hopes and stories of these migrants as their dehydrated days, evading the U.S. Border Patrol, turn into sub-zero nights, filled with barbed wire, brutal storms and the ever-present confrontation with death that is reality for the 10s of thousands of illegal immigrants who make a similar journey into the United States every year.
