Dying to Live: A Migrant's Journey dvd

Author: Carol Schaal '91M.A.


“Who are these people, and why are they risking their lives to enter the United States?” the narrator of this documentary asks. In seeking to answer that question, the film provides both a look at the human face of the Mexican immigrant, including scenes of the harrowing journey migrants undertake to cross the U.S. border, and a discussion of the social, economic, political and religious issues involved.

The 33-minute film, along with bonus material, was scripted and produced by Father Daniel Groody, CSC, ’86, assistant professor of theology at Notre Dame, and his cousin, Bill Groody, who has worked in radio and television production.
