Jesuit's Documentary about Immigrant Youth Part of Larger Immigration Project

Posada, an award-winning documentary film written, directed, and produced by Jesuit Father Mark McGregor is part of the Posadas Project, an initiative through which McGregor promotes education and advocacy for immigrants.  

Posada is McGregor's response to the American bishops' call for the Justice for Immigrants campaign. The documentary was inspired by Las Posadas, the annual Mexican Christmas celebration. Free viewings of the documentary, which focuses on the journeys of three boys and a mother who immigrate to the United States, have recently been shown in Phoenix and Los Angeles.

The film is available for purchase at and a trailer for the film can be viewed via the video below.
