ALL OF ME (LLévate mis amores)

Mexico and the United States share the greatest border between the first and the third world. That makes it a bridge for thousands of migrants who expose themselves to every danger as they travel through the country on a train called “The Beast.” That’s where they meet the Patronas, a group of Mexican women who, every day since 1995, make food and toss it to the helpless as the train rushes by. This documentary is an intimate approach, a personal diary that draws a border between the life they were given and the life they chose. In the midst of a country at war, in a world where all hope seems lost, the Patronas breathe life into a human value that seems to be fading with each day: love for one another.

Directed by Arturo González Villaseñor. México. 2014. 90 min. In Spanish with English subtitles.

México comparte con Estados Unidos la frontera más grande entre el primer y el tercer mundo. Eso lo hace el puente de miles de migrantes que cruzan el país montados en el lomo del tren La Bestia, expuestos a todos los peligros. Ahí se encuentran con las Patronas, el grupo de mujeres mexicanas que desde 1995, todos los días, prepara comida que lanza caliente a los desprotegidos sin que el tren se detenga.

Este documental es un acercamiento íntimo, un diario personal que traza la frontera entre la vida que les tocó vivir y la que ellas eligieron. Una película coral, donde las voces de quince personajes retratan la difícil realidad campesina. En medio de un país en guerra, en un mundo donde la esperanza parece perdida, Las Patronas rescatan el principal valor humano que día a día se desvanece: el amor por el otro. Un bravo, cotidiano y sorprendente ejemplo de solidaridad que contrasta con la violencia de uno de los pasos más crueles del mundo para viajantes sin papeles.
