A conceptual artist, Alvaro Enciso, travels to remote regions of the Sonora Desert to lay crosses at the exact coordinates where undocumented immigrants have died in pursuit of the American Dream. DEAD SITES touchingly shows the intersection of a humanistic act with art, as well as an often unseen reality of US border policy.
