All of Me

90 minutes 2014

This moving documentary profiles villagers (most of them women) in La Patrona, Mexico, who prepare food for the Latin American migrants passing through the area on freight trains. Between interviews with the subjects, director Arturo González Villaseñor presents scenes of them throwing food to strangers on moving trains, and through meaningful repetition the act comes to seem like a religious ritual. This spiritual quality extends to the interviews, as the subjects often expound on their Catholic faith when asked to explain why they help others. Villaseñor has achieved something rare—a satisfying piece of spiritual filmmaking on a delicate political topic. In Spanish with subtitles.
