PBS FRONTLINE presents: "Marcos Doesn't Live Here Anymore"


Monday, April 15th at 9:00pm on WGVU Public Television, PBS FRONTLINE explores the human cost of deportation in the film Marcos Doesn’t Live Here Anymore. WGVU talks with its filmmaker.

“Marcos, Elizabeth’s husband, having been deported from the United States in 2010, he’s an undocumented Mexican and he’s somebody that has had a misdemeanor record. He gets stopped at a yellow light and she’s a Marine war hero who’s very patriotic to the country.”

David Sutherland is filmmaker of the FRONTLINE, Independent Lens and VOCES premier of Marcos Doesn’t Live Here Anymore.

“If you could follow the story without an agenda , and whether you are pro-immigration or against it, and make the audience feel like they’re living in their skin, which is what I do as a portraitist, then you would have gone through the experience of deportation. That’s what my goal was.”

Marcos Doesn’t Live Here Anymore airs Monday, April 15th @ 9:00pm on WGVU Public Television.
