“Whether considered illegal or illegalized, the empathy evoked by this intimate portrait of a family forced to decide which members go or stay, based not just on citizenship but on age and gender as well, forces viewers to witness a serious problem in America today and to ask why, and what should be done? ‘Sin Pais’ is a powerful educational tool in my classroom at UC Berkeley’s School of Social Welfare.”
