Product Description

Daily, thousands of primarily poor and young indigenous Mexicans abandon their native homes. They start voyages to the 'first world' in search of jobs and the hope of a brighter future--or, indeed, any economic future at all. In their wake, they leave behind the hollow footprints of a cultural and domestic abandonment. 2501 Migrants illustrates this through the story of Alejandro Santiago, a middle-aged artist and family man from Oaxaca, Mexico.

Truly Enjoyable and A Great Tribute Sept. 14 2010
By Tracey - Published on
Format: DVD
This is a wonderful documentary that not only tells a beautiful story about artist Aljeandro Santiago, but gives perspective on what happens to a town when a majority of its villagers have left. If you are of Mexican heritage or interested in Mexican culture, art, immigration and/or documentaries, this is highly recommended!

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
What an art series! Great idea, good to hear about migration issues from a Mexican point of view. I have watched it three times.

The artist featured in the film died at 49 years old. My condolences to this artists family and friends. The movie illustrated an ambitious artist with a great vision. He will be greatly missed.

disappointing documentary Nov. 20 2012
By Maria Furman - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This was a very disappointing movie, not the artist, but the filmwork. Long monologs with pretty much same stories from the workers and repetitive journeys to the village with same story on how the people moved out didn't help showing the great idea of the project. I bought it to show to my high school students who are mostly Mexican and was hoping to give them a great piece of art and inspiring story, but I am afraid keeping them focused for 57 min will be hard, I had hard time staying focused, and I am usually excited about everything. Also reading captions takes away from looking at the images, and my students are slow readers. I wish there would be more artwork and less people talking; the workers are not good story-tellers! The painting on the cover was so promising, and I don't even remember if it was in the movie.
