Featuring a Q&A with filmmaker Emily Cohen Ibañez!

Join us for a special screening of the film Fruits of Labor followed by a panel discussion with organizations working on borders, food, and migrant justice in our region.

A Mexican-American teenager dreams of graduating high school, when increased ICE raids in her community threaten to separate her family and force her to become the breadwinner for her family. She works long days in the strawberry fields and the night shift at a food processing factory. 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? (Dir. by Emily Cohen Ibañez, 2021, USA, 78 mins., NR)

This is a rental of The Loft Cinema, presented by The University of Arizona Center for Regional Food Studies.
