“The Vertical Border”, Habesha Media co-produced documentary that addresses forced migration from Central America has won Best Feature Documentary in the Scandinavian International Film Festival. 
“The film travels along this “vertical border” to look at how Central America’s displaced navigate the cruel migration and asylum policies of Mexico and the United States. The documentary uses archival footage to depict the bitter legacy of U.S. intervention in Central America. Interviews with migrants, journalists, human rights defenders and officials assisting refugees drive the narrative.

We witness how migrants are hunted by the authorities and Mexico has become a waiting room for thousands of asylum seekers.”
