TORN APART: SEPARATED AT THE BORDER,
TELLING THE PERSONAL STORIES OF TWO MOTHERS
SEPARATED FROM THEIR CHILDREN AT THE U.S.-MEXICO BORDER,
DEBUTS OCTOBER 10, EXCLUSIVELY ON HBO
At least 3,000 families with children were separated at the U.S.-Mexico border in 2018. TORN APART: SEPARATED AT THE BORDER, debuting THURSDAY, OCT. 10 (9:00-9:40 p.m. ET/PT), offers first-person stories of how the immigration crisis has affected two of those mothers and their young children, who were separated from each other for months. Directed and produced by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Ellen Goosenberg Kent (“Crisis Hotline: Veterans Press 1”) and Talos Films, this intimate 40-minute documentary followed those families for nine months after they fled life-threatening conditions in their home countries to seek asylum in the United States.
The documentary will also be available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and partners’ streaming platforms.
