Saturday, September 14, 1pm
The Phillips Collection, Washington, DC
Tickets: $12 for adults, $10 for students & seniors (62+), free for visitors 18 and under & members (includes museum and exhibition admission)

The documentary Which Way Home will air as part of the film series for The Warmth of Other Suns: Stories of Global Displacement at The Phillips Collection. The screening will be on September 14 at 1pm.

This film follows several unaccompanied child migrants as they journey through Mexico en route to the US on a freight train they call "The Beast." Director Rebecca Cammisa (Sister Helen) tracks the stories of children like Olga and Freddy, nine-year-old Hondurans who are desperately trying to reach their families in Minnesota and Jose, a ten-year-old El Salvadoran who has been abandoned by smugglers and ends up alone in a Mexican detention center. The film also focuses on Kevin, a canny, streetwise 14-year-old Honduran, fleeing an abusive stepfather and whose mother hopes that he will reach New York City and send money back to his family. These are stories of hope and courage, disappointment and sorrow. They are the ones you never hear about - the invisible ones.
