Hotel dePaso is adocumentary that portrays theeveryday life
of thedeported immigrants that liveon this oldhotel formerly
called “El Centenario” andnow knownas “HotelMigrante”;
this place represents amicrocosmor underworldwhere
goodandevilmeet throughprotagonist andantagonistic
characters. As lifeand timegoby, as if itwas apurgatorywith
lost souls, every character evolves building this film ina choral
manner; each voicebrings somethingdifferent throughhis
ownholds: his past, his emotions, frustrations, his survival...
all of themhave to resolve theirmigratory situationeither by
trying to cross illegallyagain to “theother side”, returning to
their home cityor countryor by survivingon theborder.
Between the confinement and thewait, the inhabitants of
this hotel have toaccommodate their lives to the rules and
dynamics imposedby those in charge, a civil organization
called “Ángeles sinFronteras”.
