Fr. Daniel Groody, CSC, was on my panel Wednesday afternoon at the Gilvary Symposium at the University of Dayton School of Law. As part of the panel, he showed his 30 minute documentary "Dying to Live: A Migrant's Journey," which is a must see for anyone interested in putting a human face on the immigration debate. The back of the DVD jacket says: "Dying to Live is a profound look at the human face of the migrant. It explores who these people are, why they leave their homes and what they face in their journey. Drawing on the insights of Pulitzer Prize winning photographers, theologians, church and congressional leaders, activists, musicians and the immigrants themselves, this film explores the places of conflict, pain and hope along the US-Mexico border. It is a reflection of the human struggle for a more dignified life and the search to find God in the midst of it all."
