In Texas, on the Mexican border, best friends Silvia and Beba dance through long summer nights. Stuck in the immigration process in a politically divided America, home seems fragile. But their bond is not. The half-light is a space for poetry and dreams.
Hummingbirds has been lovingly crafted by a team of mostly first-time filmmakers in all key roles at all stages of the project. They describe their approach as a collaborative apprenticeship model of filmmaking, where artists new to nonfiction cinema share responsibilities and credits with more experienced mentors. In this dynamic, the exchange of learning goes both ways. The Hummingbirds team is predominantly Mexican American, predominantly Texan, predominantly queer, predominantly women/non-binary, and predominantly Fronterizas.
