Set along the tumultuous Arizona-Mexico border, FRONTERA, starring Ed Harris, Eva Longoria, and Michael Pena, follows Miguel (Peña), a hardworking father and devoted husband who crosses the border illegally and is wrongfully accused of murdering the wife of a former sheriff (Harris). Miguel’s pregnant wife (Longoria) lands in the hands of corrupt Mexican “Coyote” smugglers as she tries to help her husband, while the ex-lawman investigates his wife’s death and unearths evidence that could destroy one family’s future.

FRONTERA examines both sides of the complex issues of immigration and human trafficking that deeply affects both the U.S. and Mexico. It shows that a border might divide two countries, but can’t divide humanity, for good or bad, we are all part of the problem and the solution.

“CRITIC’S PICK. Ed Harris is so good. The film is actually about something greater than its mere mechanics.” – Stephanie Zacharek, Village Voice

“THE CAST IS UNIFORMALLY EXCELLENT. Harris is the bedrock and you’re damn-near convinced he could bridge the hot-button political divides on his lonesome.” – Keith Ulhich, Time Out NY

“Two of our best actors elevate this unsparing look at the plight of illegal immigrants.” – Lou Lumenick, NY Post

“There’s much to like about border-crossing drama Frontera. Its immigrants are real characters, not just vehicles of understanding for white people.” – Andrew Lapin, The Dissolve

"A challenging and insightful examination of the complex tensions between two peoples." - Dallas Morning News

“A Great film. The story is well told and will definitely start a conversation for the good on this very relevant issue for our people." Laura Zardain, Cosmopolitan en Espanol

“Fascinating. I loved it. It strikes a great balance on both sides of the issue.” - Augusta Silva, CALA on CNN En Espanol
