Directed by Gregory Nava | 1983

With Zaide Silvia Gutiérrez, David Villalpando, Ernesto Gómez Cruz

"From the very first moments of El Norte, we know that we are in the hands of a great movie."
—Roger Ebert, The Chicago Sun-Times

A brother and sister (Villalpando and Gutiérrez) escape the violent political strife of their native Guatemala—but discover a new form of hardship as they try to make it in America. A stunningly photographed work of magical realism, El Norte is a heartrending, humanistic look at the immigrant experience and the elusive nature of the American Dream.
