Sleep Dealer

Sleep Dealer, directed by Alex Rivera, is a sci-fi film that illustrates the American demand for 'cheap' migrant labor, but rejection of the people supplying it. In a dystopian futuristic setting and through the life story of a migrant worker, the film explores the intersection of immigration policy, the US capitalist economy, and the use of militarized technology as a ‘solution’ to the immigration ‘problem.’
