Dreams of Mexican Disneyland in Thinking Grande!

October 1, 2009 11:25 a.m.

The film Thinking Grande! tells the story of Jose Luis Bonilla, a Mexican immigrant dishwasher turned entrepreneur who worked for 20 years to build his dream of a Mexican Disneyland in the heart of California. He built it without permits and once the county demanded permits, he abandoned the massive complex of buildings and moved back to Mexico. We'll talk with documentary filmmaker, Kevin Bender.
