engaging and educational documentary

Author: Daniella from Seattle
22 September 2004

I previously saw Hannah Weyer's documentary, La Boda, that featured Elizabeth Ruiz. She was a young, intelligent and ambitious young Mexican-American woman who comes from a family of migrant workers on the eve of her wedding. This film continues the journey with the Ruiz family through the eyes of Elizabeth's younger sister, Liliana.

Liliana is fourteen years old and must continue to adapt to her family's constant migration between California and Texas, so her mother can continue to bring in an income for the family household through grape picking. This is a challenge that many young children of Mexican migrants face on a daily basis. Not only is it a social challenge for them to maintain friendships as they move, it also presents an additional obstacle when transferring credits in high school so they have the opportunity to graduate.

This is a really educational look at a common social epidemic that people need to come to terms with.
