Crossing the River

Directed by Camelia Frieberg
Canada, 1988 (documentary, 25 minutes, English)

Film Description:
"Born of a revelatory encounter with a young mother who found haven (of a kind) in Toronto after fleeing Salvadorean death squads, Camelia Frieberg's Crossing the River addresses not only the intense personal and political impact of the encounter upon the filmmaker, but the ever-narrowing gap between first and third world experience in an age of mass refugee resettlement."
