THE INFILTRATORS is a docu-thriller that tells the true story of a rag-tag group of undocumented youth – Dreamers – deliberately getting detained by Border Patrol in order to infiltrate a shadowy, for-profit detention center… Marco and Viri are members of the National Immigrant Youth Alliance, a group of radical DREAMers who are on a mission to stop unjust deportations. And the best place to stop deportations, they believe, is in detention. However, when Marco and Viri attempt a daring reverse ‘prison break,’ things don’t go according to plan. By weaving together documentary footage of the real infiltrators with re-enactments of the events inside the detention center, THE INFILTRATORS tells an incredible and thrilling true story in a genre-defying new cinematic language.

“The docu-thriller’s experimental approach makes for a compelling watch.”
– NEW YORK TIMES

“A doc mixing interviews, real-time action and reenactment in exciting ways, Alex Rivera and Cristina Ibarra’s THE INFILTRATORS tells a true story so inspiring it’s a wonder it isn’t better known.”
– THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

“An innovative blend of documentary and stages scenes, directors Alex Rivera and Cristina Ibarra’s urgent movie personalizes the undocumented struggle.”
– INDIEWIRE

“Delivers an encouraging example of the power of a united people, and it opens a window into the abuses and inhumane separations that are carried out under the guise of protecting the nation.”
