"An important and informative collection of essays that puts the movie into historical, cultural and artistic context."
""Alambrista" refocuses attention on the Mexican immigrant experience in the United States. . . the book is a good read."
""Alambrista and the US-Mexico Border; Film, Music and Stories of Unducumented Imigrants" is already playing a major role in new collaborative efforts within the field of Latino Studies. . "Alambrista" demands the attention of students, scholars, and activists alike.""
"The book is a collection of essays on the historical context of the film as well as criticism and analysis of it. At the end of each essay is a series of provocative questions for the reader/viewer. All of this creates an exceptional educational package that is highly recommended not just for the classroom but also anyone interested in the life of the undocumented migrant agricultural worker."
"Readers will find the film critiqued in the text with remarkable even-handedness, providing insight and context. . . an extremely valuable contribution to the ongoing debate about what we can/might/could/should/must not/must do to preserve lives and make our border with Mexico viable."
