Hi All,

I am writing from Women Make Movies, the non-profit distributor of films by and about women, to let you know about our **new release** MARIA IN NOBODY'S LAND. This film is essential for courses on human rights, Latin American studies, Chicano studies, immigration, labor, international studies and women's studies, as well as for public libraries and interested community groups. To celebrate this release, WMM is offering a special promotion on all titles from our Human Rights collection. 

I am posting more info below on MARIA IN NOBODY'S LAND and this special offer. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, and thanks as always for supporting independent women filmmakers!

MARIA IN NOBODY'S LAND <http://www.wmm.com/filmcatalog/pages/c840.shtml>

MARIA IN NOBODY'S LAND is an unprecedented and intimate look at the illegal and extremely dangerous journey of three Salvadoran women to the United States, through Mexican territory. Doña Inés, a 60 year old woman, has been looking for her daughter for five years and is following the same route her daughter took while crossing Mexico en route to America. Marta and Sandra, tired of the violence from their husbands and wanting to overcome poverty, decide to leave their families behind to travel to America - with only thirty dollars in their pockets. During their harrowing journey, the three women encounter prostitution, slave trade, rape, kidnapping and even death, in an unwavering quest for a better life.
