The Harvest (La Cosecha), a film by U. Roberto Romano
Presented by La Salud in honor of National Farmworkers Awareness Week 2012
March 28, 2012
La Salud (The Public Health Latino Student Organization) invites you to join us next week Wednesday, March 28th at 6pm for a film screening of "The Harvest" [La Cosecha] a film by U. Roberto Romano in honor of National Farmworkers Awareness Week 2012 (3/25-3/3/31).This event will take place at the School of Public Health I room 1690. Food will be provided.
About the Movie: Every year there are more than 400,000 American children who are torn away from their friends, schools and homes to pick the food we all eat. Zulema, Perla and Victor labor as migrant farm workers, sacrificing their own childhoods to help their families survive. THE HARVEST/LA COSECHA profiles these three as they journey from the scorching heat of Texas' onion fields to the winter snows of the Michigan apple orchards and back south to the humidity of Florida's tomato fields to follow the harvest.
Why do we have National Farmworkers Awareness Week?
