Abstract:

Manuela and Ben Aparicio, sister and brother, brought by their parents in search of a better future, arrived in the Fillmore, California from a rural village in Mexico. Twenty years later, they share their stories of dislocation and their determination to succeed. They sensitively portray their struggles to learn English, excel in school, resist efforts to be pushed into vocational programs and be accepted by their American neighbors. Their story, filmed in the late 1980's, poses critical and relevant questions about what it means to cross the border and make the U.S. home. "Radiates humanity. Inspirational!"--Eduardo Diaz, Director, San Antonio CineFestival.
