In My Family / En mi familia Cover. In her eagerly-awaited second book for children, Carmen Lomas Garza takes us once again to her hometown of Kingsville, Texas, near the border with Mexico. Through vibrant paintings and warm personal stories, Carmen brings to life more loving memories of growing up in a traditional Mexican American community: eating empanadas, witnessing the blessing on her cousin's wedding day, and dancing to the conjunto band at the neighborhood restaurant. #mothersday
With Spanish subtitles, I just finished Mi Familia; and I must say this movie is fantastic. I'm posting the Youtube link to it: 2hr6min. I found this film to be a trove of old & even current social & gender issues. The movie has humor, love, tragedy, so much...this is really worth your time if you haven't seen it already.
