This is the third short documentary I set out to direct for the CLASE 2012 Seminar of Education in Mexico City. ( clase.org.mx/2012/ ) Clase 2012 is a national education event that showcases all the efforts that are being made in the country to improve educational practices without any help from the government. It shows that things CAN be done even in the poorest contexts. This project is about the "two-way immersion" program being established at the indigenous school Escuela "Juan Álvarez" in Xochistlahuaca, Guerrero. The Spanish language was not practiced by new generations in this community, so the teachers at "Juan Álvarez" school decided it was time for their kids to see themselves as part of an indigenous community, but also part of something bigger: México. Thanks to Vivi Bustillos and Jaime Prieto from 35AM (Production house in Mexico City) for their total support and motivation throughout this whole process. Hope you like it.+ More details
