Full movie description "...And the Earth Did Not Swallow Him":Marcos is a lad in Texas, the second son of a migrant farmworker family, his brother is missing in the Korean war. We travel with the family into Minnesota, following the crops. The housing is awful, sometimes the boss furnishes no water as the hands labor, and TB goes untreated. In good times the pay is $15 a day for adults, half that for children. For a few sordid weeks, his parents leave him in the care of a corrupt couple, he's expelled from school for hitting back, and he finds solace in a graveyard. As his parents long for their missing son, as folks gather around a local troubadour for songs of romance, comedy, and heartbreak, Marcos observes and remembers.
Reviews of the ...And the Earth Did Not Swallow HimThis movie, an adaption of Tomas Rivera's short novel "...y no se lo trago la tierra" (And the Earth Did Not Devour Him), is a fairly accurate representation of both Hispanic social/religious values and the social/political hardships of Latino migrant workers during the mid twentieth century (i.e. worker exploitation and social discrimination).
This film's producers and director did a very good job of choosing to adapt to cinema a select few of the novel's passages to achieve a story that strikes a very good balance between presenting Hispanic culture and the numerous challenges facing migrant workers, thus resulting in a coherent story via the observations and reflections of the protagonist that sincerely describes the life, in general, of Latino migrant workers.
I definitely recommend this movie and the book for those who need some enlightenment about the shame of worker exploitation and the strength of the human spirit.
Peace to All...
