Documentary: “2501 Immigrants: a Journey” to air on KLRU

“2501 Immigrants: a Journey” follows Alejandro Santiago, a middle-aged artist from Oaxaca, Mexico who returns home after a brief exile in France to find a virtual ghost town. Everyone has left to become a day laborer in the United States leaving storefronts vacant and homes empty. Inspired by this, he creates 2,501 life-size human sculptures to represent all of the migrant workers who have left the town, turning his entire village into a gigantic piece of art as well as poignant political statement.
