Mi Vida: 3 Worlds of Maria Gutierrez

Mi Vida: 3 Worlds of Maria Gutierrez

"Highly Recommended! Maria Elena Gutierrez's success story is remarkable; a young Mexican immigrant, who came to America and after years of hard work, today is an inspiration to others. Technically, the program is excellent. When Maria's parents speak (in Spanish), the English subtitles are clear and easy to read. The photography forces the viewer to face the harsh realities of a life of poverty. The Mexican music is a pleasant background and adds an ethnic touch. The program explores the problems of poor Mexican immigrants, including the cultural differences with which they must come to terms." -VRG Review
Immigration is certainly an important and powerful topic in the United States today. Illegal immigration is a controversial and political matter; however, there are millions of legal immigrants who are facing very difficult challenges to succeed and find a place in American society; this classic documentary addresses that challenge head-on. This is the inspirational story of Maria Elena Gutierrez, a young Mexican girl who came to America and overcame not only cultural differences and poverty, but illiteracy as well. Here we meet Maria and her family and explore the world she came from, the world she's in and the future's she made for herself through hard work and dedication to a willingness to achieve.
