Audiences Are Sharing
I just watched your film and loved it.
Being able to see it is an immeasurable help in our reporting

We thought it was constructed pretty well

at it. The plight of the immigrant is one we all share.
But when we shun these capable and industrious people who
arrive on our soil to better themselves and our country,
we sacrifice that vitality and urge to grow that has made
America the envy of the world. This film embodies the ongoing
struggle to remind this nation of its past and spur it into
a shining future.

Great documentary! I saw the film and
found it to be inspirational.
I'm Purhepecha and I know just how some of these people
feel. Many of my family members still live and work in those
conditions, not just in California but in different parts
of the U.S.

I just saw
your film today at the Indio Performing Arts Center and
met the girls as well..your film was so wonderfully done
and a real eye opener for the rest of us...living so close.
After seeing it, I had a hard time at the club we belong
to this evening, enjoying the luxurious environment and
cocktail party we were at. So many people suffer and we
only see a small part of it.
Thanks for bringing to light a serious problem we are all
in a lot of ways, responsible for.

It was my
pleasure and honor to introduce you, your films and Tamara
Damante. I thought both of your films were great. The Purepecha
film is a very important film with a great cause. I thought
the panel was incredible. What great people, from former
Judge Larson, the court receiver, Tom Flynn, to Sergio,
Michael and Sister Gabi. They give me faith in humanity.
Anyway, IPAC's General Manager mentioned to me that there
may be an event there at some point in support of Duroville.
I told him to count me in in terms of me performing there
Palm Desert, CA.
you so much for screening your movies this weekend at the
CVLIFF. The Purepecha was very moving. I've had the opportunity
to visit the park on a couple of occasions and have been
very moved by the people who have found themselves in a
difficult situation. Maybe IPAC can help you with getting
some help to the people in the park. I would like to see
if we can be part of the solution instead of part of the

I was pretty
amazed and shocked how people in Coachella Valley cohabitate.
I now know that just because we are in the United States,
and live in California, doesn't mean everyone has a nice
home and food to eat everyday. I would have to say
it opened my eyes more to what is really going on around
our state and country. It made me think about how
I can help others and make a difference by exploring things,
and learning about others who are in need of help.
