Max Kennedy and the American Dream

Director: Vikram Zutshi
Year: 2011
Duration: 60 min
Language: English

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, who he feels are destroying his country. Casting a penetrating light on the US-Mexico border issue, Max’s story is a telling insight into human trafficking, first-world poverty and right-wing hate politics.
