Filmmaker Monika Navarro was 21 years old when she began making a film about her uncle Gino, who was deported from the U.S. and died in Tijuana, where he was buried in an unmarked grave. Two months later, her uncle Augie was also deported; both had been legal U.S. residents, military veterans - and drug addicts.
Lost Souls explores the impact of deportation set against the backdrop of increased attention to the US-Mexican border.
“Before we could recover his body, Gino had been buried in an unmarked grave in Mexico.” (2:04)
