Barb --

I don't think anyone mentioned "Fear & Learning @ Hoover Elementary" which
is available from Transit Media (800) 343-5540, email

It is a great film by Laura Angelica Simon, a Mexican immigrant and fourth
grade teacher at Hoover Elementary in Los Angeles, who was devastated by
the impact of Proposition 187 and made this film in response. It
interweaves the stories of Mayra, a Salvadoran 5th grader, and 2 teachers
at Hoover Elemntary, one who voted for Prop 187 and one who voted against

This film is included in our hot-off-the-presses VideoForum: Viewing Race
publication, a curated videography of independent films about ethnicity and
diversity. There are a number of other films in this publication which
might be useful to you. Also, you may be interested in our VideoForum:
Latino issue which is online @ .

The pulications are free, to receive a copy just email us with your address

Can any of you knowleable folks suggest a good video (or two or...) dealing
with illegal aliens and/or U.S.-Mexico border problems?
