Fotoperiodista: documentando la crisis migratoria en Tijuana

[2017] Second place award at the 10th National Arts & Entertainment Journalism. A production of Dignicraft and KCET-Link for Artbound.



Short documentary that portrays the work of the Tijuana photojournalist, Omar Martínez, covering the situation of the more than 8,000 Haitian migrants who have arrived in Tijuana in search of applying for a humanitarian visa to enter the United States.


Through the work of the photojournalist, the film addresses the issue of Haitians in Tijuana from a human perspective, and proposes a look of empathy and understanding of the phenomenon of migration. This, as a measure to avoid the reactions that promote the creation of "walls" between cultures and countries.
