This is a promo for a ducumentary I'm color grading called " A Bridge Apart" by
A Bridge Apart is a story about the journey of the thousands of people from
Central America and Mexico who leave their homes and families, suffer extraordinary
brutality -or loss of life itself- in search of the American Dream. The program
also examines ways that economic development can minimize this flow of migration.
A Bridge Apart opens with a large yellow train nicknamed "the beast" approaching a small town in southern Mexico. It is Arriaga, the first stop on a 1,500 km ride through central Mexico. The small station is crowded with men, women and children. Most have been traveling for weeks through Central America to arrive at this destination. It is a freight train, so there are no seats. Passengers will tie themselves down on the tops and sides of the cars so as not to fall under the wheels.
