Border Incident

Director: Anthony Mann
1949 - Narrative - USA - 94 Minutes - Unrated

June 1 @ 6:30 pm

This dark and harrowing noir unfolds against the backdrop of the Bracero Program, a US-Mexican labor recruitment deal that brought thousands of Mexican peasants to the fields of California and all along the border. Ricardo Montalban and George Murphy team up as government agents trying to crack down on bandits and racketeers preying on the defenseless migrants. Set amidst the irrigation ditches of the Joaquin Valley and shot in beautiful grey tones by legendary cinematographer John Alton, this classic story about elemental violence and human trafficking has lost none of its topicality.

Q&A following screening with Gerd Gemünden, Professor of Film and Media Studies at Dartmouth
