"BIRTH ON THE BORDER places you in the hearts and minds of women who make large and often terrifying sacrifices for the health and safety of their children. Whatever your views on immigration, this film will challenge what you think you know."
- Angie Reza Tures, Founder and Producer of Femme Frontera Film Festival
"BIRTH ON THE BORDER uses beautiful imagery and compelling stories to illuminate an important yet often overlooked topic: childbirth and the border. Not only is this film timely, but it also has broad appeal to those interested in the US health care system, US-Mexico borders, and/or immigration. I showed
Birth on the Border in my university course because it touches on so many aspects of the human experience. Unsurprisingly, it generated rich discussion."
- Ophra Leyser-Whalen, PhD Professor, Dept. of Sociology & Anthropology, University of Texas, El Paso
"This film explores the politics of care work and the lived experiences of women for whom dangerous border crossings are a daily reality. Birth on the Border is absolutely essential viewing for all race, class, and gender studies courses."
- Diana Cage, Professor, Art & Gender Studies, San Francisco State University
