  1. 14

    14

    By José Casas.

    Product Code: FF8000

    • Drama | Tragedy
    • Middle School | High School | College and Adult | Senior Adults
    • 2m., 2w.
    • 120 min.

    14 was inspired by the true-life event in May 2001 in which a smuggler abandoned 30 Mexicans crossing the desert, resulting in 14 deaths from dehydration. It is a starting point for exploration to investigate the complexities of people living on the border, not giving answers but raising difficult questions. The mosaic of flawed and struggling people included emphasize the importance of investigating this topic in a way that calls not only for action and conversation but, ultimately, for a collective solution.
