A Film You Will Enjoy and Remember!
20 October 2015 | by Robert RoigSee all my reviews

This documentary is engaging, informative, enlightening and uplifting. It is so different from your usual documentary, and I must say it is far more entertaining and memorable as a result of the delightful way the story is told. While it is highly educational about Mexican and U.S. history, it is also personal, honest, and full of surprises, with drama, humor and lots of people and places that you will not soon forget. It unfolds like a mystery story as the film's writer/director embarks upon a family mission that will ultimately change his life. Whether you are an older adult, middle age, a young adult or even a child; male or female; or of any nationality or background, you will find the experience of losing yourself into the enchanting spell that Weaving the Past casts to be so very satisfying and inspirational. This film has it all and more. There are few films that you can wholly recommend to family and friends to watch, and this is one of the best out there. I'm still thinking about this film and plan to watch it again because there is so much to it. Well done!!!!
