PRESS:

Press Reviews of The Deported:

“Excellent, timely, emotionally intense documentary”

 

- Brian Costello, Common Sense Media

 

“The Deported has the potential to catalyze efforts to support deportees and their families. Watching these four examples of harsh, inhumane, and unreasonable treatment, you will find yourself empathizing with the deportees, feeling the shock and the pain of what they are going through.”

- Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, New York Film Critics Online

 

 “Riveting….5 Stars, The Deported tells the harrowing stories of four immigrant families dealing with ICE; YouTube’s distribution attracts controversy’

 

- Bill Boushka, Bill’s Media Commentary
