Alex Rivera & Cristina Ibarra’s The Infiltrators | 2019 Sundance Film Festival

More than a decade after breaking out with Sleep Dealer, Alex Rivera (co-directs with Cristina Ibarra) returns with a docu feature nimbly includes dramatized re-enactments. Much like when young pilot named Luke Skywalker made the impossible three point shot into the Death Star, The Infiltrators details how Dreamer activists embrace the Orange state colors with an unfathomable covert mission to truly help fellow men and women detained by Border Patrol. The world premiere screening (only the second docu film to break the NEXT section) took place at the Library and cast, crew and super heroes without capes were in attendance.
