Very good. I know what he's up to!
5 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We had a viewing of this Movie at my college and we had the Director Mark Becker actually come talk to us about the movie. He said that Carmelo was still in Mexico but his daughter crossed. But he said he was doing good and that when he premiered the movie in Mexico it made Carmelo very proud. Becker says that many people have helped in aid for him. And that he contacts him around every few months. This movies is a great find, and really shows the problems that many family's in Mexico face. I think this should be a staple in many Spanish/international studies classes around the nation just because it shows this problem in different light that many people don't really see.
