‘Sleep Dealer’ is a Sundance award-winning sci-fi thriller packed with stunning visuals and strong social and political themes.

Memo Cruz (Luis Fernando Peña) is a young man in near-future Mexico. When his family is victim of a misguided drone attack he finds himself with no option but to head north, towards the U.S./Mexico border. But migrant workers cannot cross this new world border – it's been sealed off. Instead, Memo ends up in a strange digital factory in Mexico where he connects his body to a robot in America.

Memo's search for a better future leads him to love, loss, and a confrontation with a mysterious figure from his past.

“Exuberantly entertaining — a dystopian fable of globalization disguised as a science-fiction adventure ( The New York Times)

Presentation by Michelle Cordova on border crossings and migration. She is the President of SJPJC and writer for La Oferta Newspaper
