The In Between
Through the eyes of children unencumbered by border politics, The In Between visits the characteristic moments of growing up between two countries, exploring how life on the border is both ordinary and extraordinary and feels vibrant and fluid. The In Between is what coming of age on the U.S. / Mexico border looks like: birthdays, discovering Selena’s music, first loves, quinceañeras, graduation, and figuring out what’s next. This immersive film forms a lyrical coming-of-age story that celebrates the vibrant space between ‘Mexican’ and ‘American’.
