Presented by the UIC Latino Cultural Center and the Latin American and Latino Studies Program

This documentary narrates the lives of women left behind in rural villages when their loved ones migrate to the United States out of economic necessity. We follow the stories of homemakers who form new business cooperatives and we experience their struggles to keep themselves out of poverty and ultimately, with the help of a Miracle, try to find a way to bring their loved ones back home.

Approx. 54 min.

Screening followed by discussion facilitated by Martina Guzman, “Milagros Made in Mexico” filmmaker.

If you require any accommodations please contact us at least three days before the event.

Co-sponsors: UIC Honors College and student organizations Mexican Students de Aztlán (MeSA) and United Students Against Sweatshops (USAS)
