LOS ANGELES, April 25, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ -- Director/Writer/Producer Walter Dominguez and Executive Producer Shelley Morrison (Chasing Light Pictures, LLC) have recently completed "Weaving the Past: Journey of Discovery."
Shelley (who co-starred as "Rosario" on the ground-breaking television comedy series, Will & Grace said, "This remarkable feature length documentary is garnering acclaim in preview screenings and has just won an 'Accolade Award of Merit' in an international film competition. We are excited about this film's potential to reach a broad audience."
The documentary tells the dramatic story of Dominguez's grandfather's transformation from a young Mexican revolutionary fighting oppression in Mexico, into a political refugee and labor organizer in the mines of Arizona, and finally into a Mexican-American Methodist minister continuing his fight for social justice throughout the U.S. Southwest.
The film also weaves in Dominguez's relentless twelve year quest to uncover the secrets of his grandfather's early years of life and locate his grandfather’s long lost relatives in Mexico.
"This film is about family, history, heroes, justice and finding meaning in life," said Dominguez. "It's been an emotional and deep process for me that took many years to complete. Whatever your ethnic background, the film reaches your core. Everyone has someone in their family history that has overcome great adversity and acted selflessly and heroically to benefit and help others. This documentary honors that nobility and courage in our ancestors."
