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.

HASH(0xb5e330cc) out of 5 stars Truly Enjoyable and A Great Tribute Sept. 14 2010
By Tracey - Published on Amazon.com
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!

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.

Kept my interest. Watched for a class at my college. Alejandro and the workers were very passionate, would be a good exhibit to see.
