“Adelante” shows the heart of Mexico beating strongly, just outside of Philadelphia, where Mexican newcomers are revitalizing a dying Irish-Catholic parish in Norristown, PA.
"This portrayal of community-building captures with intimacy and hope the contemporary moment of ethnic succession."
- Philippe Bourgois, Professor of Anthropology and Family and Community Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania
"Adelante is a must see film for anyone interested in the essential nexus between immigration and religion in the making and remaking of the American experience."
- Marcelo M. Suárez-Orozco, Dean and Distinguished Professor of Education at UCLA Graduate School of Education & Information Studies
