Ignacia Guillermo Antonio was one of the original settlers of El Paraiso, a small village in Guerrero, Mexico. Shortly before her death, the 85 year-old woman recalled how settlers, displaced by regional skirmishes during the Mexican Revolution, formed a community here that thrived on coffee production. When coffee prices plummeted in the late nineties, El Paraiso began to resemble a ghost town as many residents emigrated to the U.S. to find work.
