P.O.V.: Soldados: Chicanos in Viet Nam; The Sixth Section

Two short films focusing on Latinos. The first concerns a “tribe” from a California farm town who served in Vietnam; the second is about migrant workers in upstate New York combating poverty in their native Mexico. Charley Trujillo, the author of the 1991 National Book Award winner “Soldados: Chicanos in Vietnam,” coproduced the first film, in which he and his friends from Corcoran, Cal., recall their lives before, during and after Vietnam. Then, filmmaker Alex Rivera follows Mexican workers in Newburgh, N.Y., whose “Grupo Union” funds public-works projects for their Puebla home town of Boqueron out of their meager salaries.
