All of Me/Llévate mis Amores

Las Patronas come to the NHCC

Crystallizing moments of peril and hope, with a heaping dose of goodwill on the side—Llévate mis Amores, or as it has been translated for English-speaking audiences, All of Me, likely leaving audiences with a bit more of their faith in humanity restored. This documentary chronicles the activities of a group of women in rural Mexico, who have, for more than a decade, prepared and distributed food for migrants on the back of la Bestia as it rolls towards the US border. The film no doubt is an educational experience for many of us and is free to attend. The lights dim around 7pm at the NHCC for the film—get there a little bit early to claim your spot.

A group of women from the Mexican village of La Patrona prepare food, bag and toss it to migrants traveling on top of the freight train known as La Bestia.

FlyerBased in the Mexican village of La Patrona, this documentary offers an intimate insight into a group of women, appropriately known as the Patronas, who since 1995 have prepared food, bagged it, and tossed it to migrants traveling on top of the freight train known as “La Bestia” (The Beast) as it makes its way to the U.S. Their remarkable example of love and solidarity, despite the risk both to themselves and to those riding the rails, contrasts with the violence of one of the cruelest stretches in the world for undocumented travelers. Presented as part of the Bank of America Free Thursday Film Series.
