P.O.V., Public television's award-winning non-fiction film series presents Escuela
ESCUELA By Hannah Weyer
August 27, 2002 at 10pm (check your local listings.)
P.O.V. concludes its summer season with Hannah Weyer’s ESCUELA (August 27). A moving follow-up to P.O.V.'s LA BODA (The Wedding), the saga of the Luis family continues as Liliana and Elizabeth, two of the Luis family daughters, try to make their way in 21st century America. For Liliana who begins her freshman year in high school, this means dealing with the harsh demands of work in the fields, constant travel and endlessly changing schools, classes and friends as she migrates with her farm-worker family between California, Texas and Mexico. For Elizabeth, a limited education and the struggle to secure citizenship for her husband combine to create an uncertain economic outlook. In this compassionate portrait, ESCUELA continues the story of one Mexican-American family's drive towards a better future.
