The Waitlist: short film


In Tijuana, a Mexican border town across from San Diego, 1000s of refugees from across the world are stranded waiting for their chance to ask the US for help and safety. As the US turns refugees away from border entry points, migrants themselves find ways to decide whose turn it is to apply for asylum on any given day. This story is about their waitlist, told through the eyes of refugees who’ve travelled from as far as Cameroon, Haiti, and Honduras. A production for Doha Debates with James Fredrick.
