Film produced by Ruben Kazaryan and Auroa Foundation in collaboration with UN Women and with technical assistance from Unesco Almaty.
The film addresses the situation of migrant workers in Kazachstan by letting migrants themselves telling their stories.
With English subtitles.
Slideshow using stills and audio recordings taken during an AI mission to several migrants shelter in Oaxaca, Mexico and Coahuila states in July 2011.
All photos are by Mexican photographer Ricardo Ramírez Arriola. Audio recordings by AI. Individual photos and testimonies are available upon request.
The piece is part of an ongoing campaign run by AI's Mexico Team to raise awareness of abuses against Central American migrants travelling through Mexico on their way to the US border. The film was launched to mark International Migrants Day 2011 and accompanied by a press release.
Made By Migrants is a project that seeks to, if not answer, at least shed a little light on these questions. Done by three interns from advertising agency Bartle Bogle Hegarty (BBH) Singapore, it “aims to look past the skin-deep perceptions of migrant workers by revealing their motivations, stories and dreams.”
