Stable Life is a documentary about an immigrant family who live and work in the stables of a Northern California racetrack. A class screening of the film may supplement a social studies, US history, or ethnic studies curriculum. Taught in conjunction with this guide, the film will challenge students to think critically about immigration in America and the debate surrounding the US/Mexico border. Discussion questions and supplemental materials facilitate further research into related topics such as workers’ rights, family and community, and the ambiguous promise of the American Dream.
