BY JESSE LERNER
The U.S. Mexican Border is the site of a disturbing increase in violence and racial intolerance. Along the border there are now a number of nativist groups that have organized with the stated purpose of ending undocumented immigration. Natives follows the individuals involved in San Diego’s anti-immigration movement. Relying principally on a direct cinema style and eye for the absurd, the film critiques the nativist position by contrasting their professed love of country with their racist and anti-democratic attitudes.
