"Dad Milks Cows in Texas"

In the mid 70s, Ramón Galván Palencia left his small town in Mexico for the United States. Over the next decade he crossed many of the borders separating the two countries in search of work. By the 1990s, he settled in Texas as a ranch hand on a dairy farm. “Dad Milks Cows in Texas” is a nonfiction portrait of Ramón as he carries out the early morning work on a dairy farm. He also happens to be the filmmaker's dad. (8 mins.)
