In the last five years one million Mexicans living in the US have returned to their country of origin. The film explores the lives of US born or raised children and youth who make up this statistic and are (back) in Mexico.  The short documentary illustrates the realities, challenges and opportunities they face living, studying, and adapting in two nations. It focuses on building awareness and education about this growing subgroup of immigrants through a mix of personal stories, relevant facts, and statistics. The film will have an accompanying curriculum that can be used in the US, Mexico and other nations.

A panel discussion, moderated by CCNY President Lisa S. Coico, will follow the screening.
