Abstract: In the mid-1990s, director Trisha Ziff documented the triumphs and struggles of one Mexican-American family, and the resulting film, Oaxacalifornia, effectively put a human face on the debated issue of immigration and the unique relationship between the United States and Mexico. Now, in 2021, Ziff is back with a followup more than a quarter of a century later.
