Desiree G

"My Family" connected to immigration because Paco's father traveled to the United States from Mexico to start a better life. Since this happened before our current generation, though, immigration was not appreciated by Americans and Mexicans were harrassed and stereotyped. Lots of people from Mexico came to LA for a better future and walked the long journey to start their lives.

Racism was a very strong factor in this movie. Since they had descended and traveled from Mexico, Paco's family was excluded and racism made life difficult. A huge example of racism in this movie was when the police were looking for Chucho and described him as "armed and extremely dangerous" and before he could run away, they shot him multiple times. To which they celebrated.

Women

I believe the movie chose Toni to portray non-violence. She was a social justice worker and she helped immigrants prevent deportation and kept them out of danger.

The movie shows Irene and Isabel as lead women. Irene defied the family's expectations and became a nun, much to their surprise. Isabel turned out to be a great factor in James' life.

My Family

I think this movie respresents earth because Paco's father loved planting. He took great care of his land and took pride in it. Mostly everybody in the movie cared for the earth.
