    Still from Why Cybraceros?

The Film

In the not so distant future the Mexican/American border has been sealed shut, as U.S. companies turn to Internet technology that allows migrant laborers to work from home. Why Cybraceros? is a five-minute satire based on (and incorporating footage from) a real 1940s U.S. government film that promoted the "Braceros" labor program and remade with a whimsical, creative twist by experimental filmmaker Alex Rivera.
