El Otro Lado

Shot in 1977 by photographer and filmmaker Danny Lyon, the film follows a group from Querétaro—two young brothers, their father, and a small cluster of their friends—who made arduous pilgrimages to Arizona’s Maricopa County to work in the state’s citrus groves. He accumulated footage of them at home and collaborated with them on a filmed restaging of their passage through the desert. We see them playing cards, singing, sleeping, and cooking in the shade of the fields they’ve come to harvest.
