**Which Way Home is a feature documentary film that follows unaccompanied child migrants, on their journey through Mexico, as they try to reach the United States? We follow children like Olga and Freddy, nine-year-old Hondurans, who are desperately trying to reach their parents in the US; children like Jose, a ten-year-old El Salvadoran, who has been abandoned by smugglers and ends up alone in a Mexican detention center; and Kevin, a canny, streetwise fourteen-year-old Honduran, whose mother hopes that he will reach the US and send money back to her. These are stories of hope and courage, disappointment and sorrow. They are the children you never hear about; the invisible ones. Language: Spanish with English subtitles.  For reviews and to view trailer, see the Internet Movie Database at: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0489342/.

The Dominican Associates Film Series is offered each year.  Dominican Associates are baptized Christians who are drawn by the Dominican spirit to a deeper way of living their Christian life.  Associates commit themselves to developing a contemplative attitude toward all reality, attending to God’s voice within and joining with others in service for the common good.
