Reyes is a 2017 John Simon Guggenheim Fellow and award-winning filmmaker. His presentation will focus on the immigrant experience and challenge preconceived notions of the US-Mexico border. He is the grandson of migrant farmworkers from Michoacán, and was raised between Mexico and the United States. His visceral and beautiful films explore the fractures separating these two worlds.
