Five Years North

88 mins


The complex world of immigration and the people and policies that define it are explored in this provocative film. A story told in tandem, Five Years North weaves the journeys of Luis, a 15-year-old Guatemalan immigrant and Judy, a Cuban-American ICE agent. Luis navigates his new life in New York City — balancing school, work, the desire to provide for his family and his incessant struggle with loneliness. Meanwhile, Judy grapples with extreme inner conflict — the acceptance of her professional obligations and the acknowledgment of her family’s own immigrant history.
