Félix: Self-Fictions of a Smuggler (Adriana Trujillo, 2012)
Directed by: Adriana Trujillo
Year: 2012

Creative documentary – 90 min – Mexico

Félix tells the story of a human smuggler who is also a low-budget border film actor. In this documentary we are exposed to the network he controls in Tijuana: the strategies, methods and members of his organization that smuggles undocumented immigrants into the United States.

Félix reveals the world of human smuggling from the point of view and perspective of the smuggler and includes fragments from films in which he has portrayed or fictionalized himself.
