In honor of Women’s History Month, the painting series “Mujeres Luz” by Talavera-Ballón celebrates the women of this time who are making history thanks to their courage, generosity and commitment to making the world a better place.
Such is the case of a group of extremely brave and generous group of women in the small village of “La Patrona”, Veracruz, Mexico, who feed migrants traveling atop the freight train known as ‘The Beast’ during their way north.
It is also a tribute to the young and remarkable women of DACA. The extraordinary resilience and dedication of these Dreamers has already earned them a place in history.

About the Film
Mexico and the United States share the greatest border between the first and the third world. That makes it a bridge for thousands of migrants who expose themselves to every danger as they travel through the country on a train called “The Beast.” That’s where they meet the Patronas, a group of Mexican women who, every day since 1995, make food and toss it to the helpless as the train rushes by.
This documentary is an intimate approach, a personal diary that draws a border between the life they were given and the life they chose. In a world where all hope seems lost, the Patronas breathe life into a human value that seems to be fading with each day: love for one another.
