"Romántico"

Set in San Francisco’s Mission district, Romántico is a documentary about Mexican musician Carmelo Muñiz Sánchez, who leaves San Francisco to return home to his beloved wife, daughters and ailing mother after years playing in taquerías and bars. But once Carmelo arrives home, he is confronted with the struggles and poverty wages that led to his first border crossing. This touching film helps to sensitize viewers to the dignity of the undocumented workers and the hardships they face. 2005, 80min., Directed by Mark Becker.
