MEXICO: They Are All My Brothers

This film follows the stories of four young boys who have come to live and work as cheese makers at Ipoderac, a home for abandoned youth. The philosophy behind Ipoderac is esfuerzo: the effort and struggle on the part of each boy to overcome the traumas of the past and redefine their lives. As director Nicole Opper says, the film reflects "the indomitable and mischievous spirit of these boys."
