Maquilapolis
(2006, dirs. Vicky Funari and Sergio De La Torre, 70 min.)

Screenings on Wedneesday June 29th / 7:30 pm

Event is Free.

Vicky Funari and Sergio De La Torre’s searing documentary focuses on the abominable working conditions of maquiladoras in Tijuana, a subject close to the heart of the artist and activist Fred Lonidier. Lonidier, through his own practice and that of the collective Labor Link TV, has explored the ways in which photography can inspire and sustain political activism, turning his attention recently to the cross-border labor struggles between the United States and México.

The film will be followed by a screening of Labor Link TV Program #66B, Han Young Workers Vote and a discussion with the artist.
