AUSTRIAN PREMIERE

 

El Paso portraits the lives of the families of two journalists who were forced to live in exile in El Paso, Texas, seeking political asylum. This is a story about the families of those that once were our witnesses, our eyes and our voice, but are now turned into invisible reporters that represent the weakest links of the news network’s chain. Living in an immigration limbo, they are far from being perceived as heroes, struggling with low-paying jobs, which seem to be reserved for Latino workers.
