Here is a list of movies that offer insights into differing Latinx immigration experiences. A few years back, Jorge Rodriguez-Jimenez created the list for Mitu. I am not sure that it would be the list that I would create but it is a place to start.
Here are the seven films on the list:
- Under The Same Moon (Immigration from Mexico)
3. Sin Nombre (Hondureas)
4. Mi Familia (My Family) (Mexico). This is a Gregory Nava film with Edward James Olmos, Jimmy Smits, and Esai Morales. It includes Jennifer Lopez in one of her early film roles.
5. The Perez Family (Cuba)
6. Desierto (US/Mexico border)
7. Entre Nos (Colombia)
