"Children of the Diasporaâ€ is a documentary about the historical and ideological origins of USEU, la UniÃ³n i i de Estudiantes Universitarios, in the United States. Set in 2009, this film begins by documenting USEUâ€™s first delegation to El Salvador. It follows the journey of a generation of students who go against their parents wishes and travel across El Salvador during a heightened political climate on a quest to unearth a brutal history of war, repression, military dictatorships, and revolutionary activity only to discover that the war for peace and democracy is far from overâ€“the stakes are high as the students observe the political propaganda and polarized community, and ask: What does this all mean? What is my role in the Salvadoran community?
