MEXICAN DREAM is a film about the contradictions in the public discourse towards immigration. It is a story of economic desperation and societal alienation on both sides of the border: the people of Magdalena Peñasco in Oaxaca, Mexico, who go to Austin, Minnesota, to quarter pigs for Hormel Foods, the makers of Spam products. Communities change with migration, and in the process of adapting the old can sometimes not assimilate with the new. Filmmaker Jon and then-Ph.D. student Alex Euler document part of this uneasy transition.
