Caminos-The Immigrant's Trail
Caminos: The Immigrant's Trail traces a group of U.S. and Canadian citizens retracing the immigrant trail from El Paso, Texas to Oaxaca, Mexico. This documentary, based on our summer 2007 trip led by Food First executive director, Eric Holt-Giménez, reveals some of the factors that drive these migrants to leave their families and risk their lives to seek work in the U.S. Hear the stories of Mexican farmers who were driven off their land by U.S. farm subsidies and the globalization of food trade.
At 20-minutes, Caminos is perfect for starting a conversation on the hot topic of migration across the border. The companion study guide can be used to guide a classroom or community discussion. Call 510-654-4400 ext 232 to place your order.
