    i just want to say that the translation was fucking trash. I know spanish and it was so fucking annoying to hear the translation because their were things that Maria said that the translator did not even mention. And she failed to capture marias passion. next time just leave that shit out lmao

    I saw the documentary on a Mexican channel and it was great. Then I saw the name of the woman distiller and we have the same last name which is not very common. Would like to get in contact with Graciela Angeles Carreno.
