The Infiltrators Trailer

"No one knows how this will all end." Oscilloscope Labs has debuted the official trailer for an acclaimed indie documentary-feature hybrid titled The Infiltrators, that first premiered at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival. It won the Next Audience Award & Best of Next award, and went on to pick up a few more prizes including the Rogue Award as the Ashland Film Festival. The film is about a rag-tag group of undocumented youth - known as "DREAMers" - that deliberately get detained by the US Border Patrol in order to infiltrate a shadowy, for-profit detention center. By weaving together documentary footage of the real infiltrators with re-enactments of the events inside the detention center, The Infiltrators tells an incredible and thrilling true story in a genre-defying new cinematic language. Starring Maynor Alvarado, Chelsea Rendon, Manuel Uriza, Juan Gabriel Pareja, and Vik Sahay. Looks like a vitally important and rousing, inspiring film.

Here's the first official trailer for Cristina Ibarra & Alex Rivera's The Infiltrators, direct from YouTube:

The Infiltrators Poster

The Infiltrators is a docu-thriller that tells the true story of young immigrants who are detained by Border Patrol and thrown into a shadowy for-profit detention center—on purpose. Marco and Viri are members of the National Immigrant Youth Alliance, a group of radical DREAMers who are on a mission to stop unjust deportations. And the best place to stop deportations, they believe, is in detention. However, when Marco and Viri attempt a daring reverse 'prison break,' things don't go according to plan. The Infiltrators is co-directed by filmmakers Cristina Ibarra & Alex Rivera. Based on a story also by Cristina Ibarra & Alex Rivera. This premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last year, where it won the Audience Award & Best of Next award; it also played at Hot Docs, Miami, Montclair, & SXSW Film Festivals. Oscope Labs will release The Infiltrators in select US theaters starting March 20th. For more info head to the film's official website.
