A DAY WITHOUT A MEXICAN
2004, 100 min, USA/Mexico/Spain, Dir: Sergio Arau

How do you make the invisible visible? You take it away. Misunderstandings and humorous situations abound in this comedic satire when California wakes up one morning to discover that a third of its population has vanished - the sole characteristic linking the 14 million disappeared being their Hispanic background. As the state begins to deteriorate, the crisis is reflected in the lives of a teacher (Maureen Flannigan), a senator (John Getz), a ranch owner (Muse Watson) and a reporter (Yareli Arizmendi).
