about the film

 

Las Fronteras explores how families can grow in unexpected ways, transcending all borders: physical, geographical and emotional. The film traces the journey of a mother and daughter as they leave their family in rural Peru for the U.S. with just the clothes on their backs. By overstepping the bounds of “traditional family,” their story of migration, sacrifice, belonging, and unconditional love highlights how families can be formed, ripped apart and put back together in unconventional ways.
