A wonderful film!
26 January 2000 | by (Salt Lake City, Utah) – See all my reviews

This film is truly one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. It gives the world a look at what Latino culture really is like. I saw it as a part of Robert Redford's Sundance Festival, and had the privilege to hear from Co-Producer Edward James Olmos. He is a brilliant actor with a great vision. If this movie is released on video or cable TV, I highly recommend that you see it!
