daily fear
31 October 2019 | by ferguson-6See all my reviews

Greetings again from the darkness. Living in constant fear. Never able to relax. The unrelenting fear of being discovered. These are the challenges faced daily by illegal immigrants.

This is the fourth short film from award winning writer-director Julio O Ramos, and the script was co-written with Lucas Mireles. Armando is the site supervisor over a crew working to renovate a home. When one of the workers falls from the roof and is seriously injured, the contrasting reactions are stunning. Armando is worried about the man's condition and how to get him treatment, while the other workers are more concerned with how this might affect their own situations.

When the big boss shows up and calls his "personal" doctor to attend to the injured worker, things go sideways quickly and Armando's well-intentioned approach is exposed as naivety. Tenoch Huerta (SIN NOMBRE) plays Armando, and Karran Karagulian (TANGERINE) plays the big boss. This little 14 minute film drives home the constant fear faced by illegal immigrants, and the extreme situation that often sustains an entire industry. As these folks strive to remain "invisible" to the world, one man doing the right thing can expose something that is very wrong.
