Which Way Home Reviews

  • Despite the subject matter -- terrified children, many who haven't seen their families in years -- Cammisa never gets sentimental, and instead lets those closest to the subject do the talking.

  • Foregrounds the idealistic vulnerability of the boys at its center, risking everything for a better life they can barely imagine.

  • Dramatically and pictorially pulls its weight.

    Ronnie Scheib — Variety

  • Without resorting to any background narration, Which Way Home raises questions about cross-border immigration policies and the macro-economic causes that propel people from struggling countries to stream into developed ones.

    Reed Johnson — Los Angeles Times

  • Investigates illegal immigration and child labor in a very human way. We ride freight trains with teenagers trying to get to the US for a better life. Exceptionally effective verite filmmaking from Rebecca Cammisa.

  • Even without illustration or allusive images, the children's own descriptions are harrowing.

    Cynthia Fuchs — PopMatters

  • A riveting documentary that taps into the same concept and themes of Sin Nombre, except it's all real and it's all heartbreaking to watch.
