The Invisible Crisis: The Female Face Of Forced Migration is a short documentary produced by Centro Presente with Intercultural Productions that explores the causes of the migration of millions of women and their children from the nations of the Northern Triangle (Guatemala, El Salvador and Hoduras) to the United States. Through the first-hand testimonies of Centro Presente members, and women & immigrant rights advocates, we hear about the tremendous levels of lethal violence confronted by women in Central Ameerica and how flight to the United States remains their only option, not for a better life, but for any life at all. However upon crossing the border after a perilous journey through Mexico into the U.S. these women find themselves once again the victims of a state-sponsored violence which continues their trauma.
