The Other Side

Natalia Almada, 70 min, Mexico, USA.

An aspiring corrido composer from the drug capital of Mexico faces two choices to better his life: to traffic drugs or to cross the border illegally into the United States. From Sinaloa, Mexico to the streets of South Central and East L.A., “Al Otro Lado” explores the world of drug smuggling, illegal immigration and the corrido music that chronicles it all.
