About the Film


This intimate cinematic portrait of two small towns – one in Mexico and one in Minnesota – is  an  evocative audiovisual meditation on  the  experience of Mexican immigrants living and working in rural America. Vivid cinematography, richly layered soundscapes, short animated sequences, and a constellation of testimonies introduce audiences to  Maltrata, an  agricultural town nestled in the mountains of Veracruz, Mexico, and to Northfield, a college town in southern  Minnesota  where many  Maltratans have immigrated and settled. By means of a nonlinear narrative and a camera that thoughtfully yet viscerally meanders between everyday scenes in both towns, Chilean-American  director Cecilia Cornejo Sotelo (dir. I WONDER WHAT YOU WILL REMEMBER OF SEPTEMBER,)  shows the complexities of, and contrasts between, these places.
