Max Kennedy and the American Dream
Max Kennedy is a Minuteman, one of the many American vigilantes who patrol the border with Mexico. Hunting down illegal immigrants, the Minutemen live a gritty existence in the desert. They do it from a belief that they are at the frontline of a war to save their country. Yet within Max lies a great conflict: a sympathy for the Mexicans, whom he feels are destroying his country. Casting a penetrating light on the U.S./Mexico border issue, Max's story is a telling insight into human trafficking, first-world poverty and right-wing hate politics.
