Alex Rivera

ALEX RIVERA received a grant for Death of a Cybracero, an experimental sci-fi narrative about Mexican farm laborers who live in Tijuana but work in the United States via the internet. They are, in effect, virtual laborers. As the principal character, Jorge, grows closer to achieving his dream of living in the United States in reality, he is forced to choose between continuing to pursue his dream or saving his sister. His sister, Victoria, has been seized by a violent group of vigilantes that patrol futuristic networks looking for illegals, or Netbacks. Will Jorge save his sister from these villains?
