La Cocina de las Patronas

Day after day, for over 20 years, a group of women in Mexico, prepare and give meals to Central American migrants who travel atop La Bestia, a U.S.-bound freight train. They call themselves Las Patronas and their mission goes beyond humanitarian assistance, symbolizing a resistance against a system that criminalizes migrants.
