Commitment to Action

Unaccompanied Minor Immigration Awareness Campaign

Commitment by

Mr. Mudd Productions

In 2009, Mr. Mudd, a film production company headed by Lianne Halfron, John Malkovich, Russell Smith, USCRI: National Center for Refugee and Immigrant Children, and UNICEF committed to raising awareness, facilitating action, and advocating for unaccompanied minor migrants traveling through Latin America. Using the 2009 documentary 'Which Way Home' along with materials and workshops developed in conjunction with the film, this coalition of partners informs immigration stakeholders and Latin American residents of the state of unaccompanied minors migrating to the United States. A targeted awareness campaign is currently being implemented throughout Latin America and the United States. To date, 'Which Way Home' has been screened in Havana (where it won the UNICEF prize), Guadalajara (hosted by the First Lady of Mexico), Los Angeles, and 13 international film festivals, from Istanbul to Amsterdam. Additionally, 'Which Way Home' had 2.5 million viewers through HBO and was nominated for a 2010 Academy Award for best feature documentary.
