Train to Nowhere: An Immigrant Death Investigation

[ ?posts_id=4663450&dest=85830]

The first feature documentary release from Storytellers International by Director Paul Kakert and Writer Colleen Bradford Krantz. A stunning documentary as part of the collection featured on .

When the bodies of 11 Central Americans and Mexicans were found inside a railcar in Denison, Iowa, the nation took notice. Reporters descended on the small farming community to discover how and why this group ended up inside a locked railcar, where they would die horrific deaths. The documentary, “Train to Nowhere; Inside an Immigrant Death Investigation” offers an honest, yet compassionate look at the 2002 railcar deaths of the 11 undocumented immigrants. It takes viewers from southern Texas, to a Guatemalan farm, to the Iowa town where the bodies were found. The film is part crime story, part immigration perspective. It breaks free of the standard immigration story in examining various viewpoints: that of one victim’s New York brother, a long-time immigration agent, and a train conductor imprisoned for working with the smugglers who locked the railcar to throw off U.S. Border Patrol inspectors.
