Bulls and Saints (Toros y santos)
Directed by Rodrigo Dorfman and Peter Eversoll
(United States, 2023, 52 min., in Spanish with English subtitles, ages 13+)

After 20 years of living in the United States, an undocumented family decides to return home. Little do they know it will be the most difficult journey of their lives. Set between the backdrop of the rodeo rings of North Carolina and the spellbinding Mexican hometown they long for, Bulls and Saints is a love story of reverse migration, rebellion, and redemption.

Después de 20 años de vivir en los Estados Unidos, una familia indocumentada decide regresar a casa. Poco saben que será el viaje más difícil de sus vidas. Situado entre el telón de fondo de los anillos de rodeo de Carolina del Norte y la fascinante ciudad natal mexicana que anhelan, Bulls and Saints es una historia de amor de migración inversa, rebelión y redención.

Stick around for a conversation with Stefania Arteaga (Carolina Migrant Network), Roger Suclupe (School of Social Work, UNC Charlotte) and lawyer Stefan Latorre (Latorre Law Firm). Co-sponsored by Norsan Media.

Hecho Aquí (Made Here) is an initiative started by Cine Casual in 2022 to highlight North Carolina productions made by or starring Latino talent. In two years, we’ve screened eight short films (including documentaries and animation shorts).
