Home is Struggle
A film by Marta Bautis
1991, 37 minutes, Color, DVD, Subtitled
Order No. W99318
Using interviews, photographs and theatrical vignettes, Home is Struggle explores the lives of women who have come to the United States from different Latin American countries-Nicaragua, Chile, Argentina and the Dominican Republic-for very different reasons, economic and political. In sharing stories about their pasts and present and their views on issues such as sexism and personal and political repression, Home is Struggle presents an absorbing picture of the construction of 'Latina' identity and the immigrant experience.

QUOTES

    "In Bautis's work, 'home', the domestic sphere, is the site of the body politic-personal repression, national origin, and the locus of struggle against personal and political repression."
