Cary Fukunagra spent two years researching the film, spending time with people on the trains and with gangsters in Central America. He also used two gang members to script edit making the slang and language as up to date and realistic as possible See more »

Back home, my friend Clarissa made me see this crazy neighbor, Doña Eleanor, you know, like witchcraft? She smoked this puro, then told me with her freaky voice that I'd make it to the U.S. but not in God's hand, perhaps in the Devil's.

They're people you know. They cook your food, bus your table, & on vacation, clean up your mess! People you know, but NEVER see. Invisible, NAMELESS...until SIN NOMBRE!
(NAMELESS in English) SIN NOMBRE is a movie about people you know. They cook your food, bus your table, and wash your dishes every time you eat at a restaurant. When you go on vacation; they make your bed, change your sheets and clean up your mess. They probably cut your grass and tend your garden, too...and Lord knows what else! Oh, Yes, these are ALL people you know, but don't see. They were invisible, NAMELESS...until SIN NOMBRE!
One of the most powerful, enlightening, depressing, and yet, strangely uplifting films I've seen this year. As NAMELSS ended, I was anxious to see who the executive producers were. I now have newfound respect and admiration for both Diego Luna and Gael Garcia Bernal (Worked together in "Y Tu Mama Tambien" and "Rudo y Cursi"). They were the movers and shakers of SIN NOMBRE. They bank-rolled it and made it happen. And it was about time! This is a story that was crying out to be told!
...Well, two stories, actually. Mara Salvatrucha is a gang/criminal organization with 100K members throughout the U.S. and Central America (Wikipedia). Human smuggling and trafficking is one of their primary sources of income. Here, we get a chilling, first-hand look into this international gangland organization and how they corrupt, destroy and exploit children and youth.
NAMELESS presents this twisted reality and lets the facts speak for themselves. You get to draw your own conclusions. Mine: Aren't we lucky we don't have to go through any of this to live here, in the USA? 10*... ENJOY/DISFRUTELA!
