About: From the Morelia Fest Website: "From a very young age, children begin to work in the Mexican countryside. The Inheritors is a journey through their lives and their daily struggle for survival. These children´s realities echo those of their ancestors. One generation after another remains caught up in a perpetual cycle of inherited poverty." Introduced by Elizabeth Scarlett, Romance Languages and Literatures, UB The riverrun Global Film Series aspires to create a dialogue between local community and institutions of higher education in Buffalo through a selection of films that provide a better understanding of our present existence in the globalized networked world. The riverrun Global Film Series is produced by riverrun, Patrick Martin President; with support from the Burchfield Penney Art Center, the UB Department of English, the UB Department of Romance Languages and Literatures, and James Agee Chair in American Culture, SUNY Distinguished Professor Bruce Jackson.
