Observation and Immersion: 2018 AFI Docs

"In Room 140, a man in Oakland rents hotel rooms to immigrants newly released from detention centers. Filmmaker Priscilla Gonzalez Sainz talk to her subjects about their reasons for leaving their homelands. The experiences of these refugees in limbo are poignant and affecting, as when a young woman describes the hunger her daughter suffers, or two other subjects discuss their hopes for a new life in the U.S. This short is almost too short; viewers will want to know more about these engaging immigrants/refugees in crisis."
