"mojado"

i am making art tonight based on my reaction to this movie i saw last week: "wetback". it was a documentary about undocumented immigration (from Nicaragua to the U.S.) that was so good and non-condescending and has stayed with me. if anyone has a chance, please see it! we heard the directors speak and they were inspiring. you can buy it, too.

I think that Nicaragua is fascinating. Love to see that doc. Not sure if I can get it in Oz. (where's Nicaragua?)lots of love to SF!!!

thanks for the recommendation. I just checked if Netflix carries it and unfortunately they don't. But Green Cine might. I've never thought of making art in reaction to a documentary, and I have seen a few good ones that were thought/emotion provoking. I'll have to try that some time. Happy art making!
