COLORES | Recuerdos De Los Duranes

A TV documentary on which Mo worked:

New Mexico PBS celebrates community by producing an intimate portrait, Recuerdos de Los Duranes. Working hand-in-hand with the Los Duranes Neighborhood Association, we conducted an oral history of the neighborhood. The result is a poignant account of how so much has changed so quickly in this traditional Hispanic community. Yet, Duranes residents still firmly believe in their community. As Joe Chavez says: "I think people are depending on themselves more and more. Before, we shared with each other whatever we could, our goods, our foods and I still do. I think that is the thing you never forget when you help somebody or they help you."
