We were only able to catch a small portion of this film in class. I continued to watch a small amount on my own. I would like to discuss the strategy used by the film makers to argue their case. This film dives into the perspective of the immigrants, to show the viewers the dangers and problems they face. It was appealing to pathos of the viewers by putting a face on immigration, and having them tell their stories, hardships, and what lead to their decision to migrate to the United States. I think that this was an effective strategy without looking critically at the film. My opinion is that it was touching and hard to hear the things these people have gone through, but you could find those types of stories from citizens of the United States as well. There are so many people in this world that need our help, and you could find these types of sob stories from all types of people. I think that it is trying to argue with examples that are not unique in our society.
