synopsis
This documentary is about indigenous Mixtec immigrants from a remote pueblo in the Oaxaca (Mexico) who go to Austin (Minnesota, U.S.A.) to work for iconic meatpacking companies. The people from this one community make up most of the immigrant community of 5,000 in the cold mid-western town of 25,000 where they coexist uncomfortably with the mostly white residents. The film follows three families' members across both sides of the border, examining how migration breeds social alienation here and community dissolution back home. The film explores the myth of undocumented immigrants not paying their taxes, and ultimately shows how migration is a broader game between consumers, big business and politicians.

director
Alex Ruiz Euler & Jon Wetterau lives in San Diego, CA.
