Farmworkers Awareness Week: "Fruits of Labor" Film Screening

Farmworkers Awareness Week: "Fruits of Labor" Film Screening In-Person

As part of Farmworkers Awareness Week (March 25- 31), join MSU Libraries and WKAR Public Media for a community film screening of "Fruits of Labor". Set in an agricultural town on the central coast of California, "Fruits of Labor" is a coming-of-age story about an American teenager traversing the seen and unseen forces that keep her family trapped in poverty.  A lyrical meditation on adolescence, nature, and ancestral forces, the film asks, what does it mean to come into one’s power as a working young woman of color in the wealthiest nation in the world?"

The film will be followed by a panel discussion and Q&A with Viviana Alamillo, Senior Organizer from For Our Future Michigan and Sofia Acevedo, UFW Foundation, moderated by Amanda Flores, WKAR Senior Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
