This is the soundtrack to CALIFAS, our short film about three stories of illegal immigration along the Tijuana/San Diego border.
In the borderlands of the southwest you might hear the word "Califas" where most of us would just say "California". The english and spanish spoken here enrich and inform one another, giving shape and voice to the unique hybrid identities of the frontera. Despite the walls, checkpoints and la migra, people continue to cross the border illegally every day. These are but a few glimpses of illegal immigration along the Tijuana/San Diego border.
