THE HARVEST/LA COSECHA is screening this Wednesday, May 4th, 2011 at 6:30pm at El Museo del Barrio in New York City as part of their Nuevo Cine series. The Nuevo Cine series is presented by El Museo in collaboration with the Murphy Institute for Worker Education and Labor Studies, CUNY, and reflects on the diverse faces of labor and the changing tides for workers.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A session with Director U Roberto Romano, Zama Coursen-Neff, the Deputy Director of the Children’s Rights Division of Human Rights Watch and the author of “Fields of Peril: Child Labor in US Agriculture,” and and members of the Community/Farmworker Alliance (NYC) and People’s Production House. Also joining us at the screening will be Executive Producers Susan MacLaury and Albie Hecht of Shine Global and other members of the film making team behind THE HARVEST/LA COSECHA. This will be a great opportunity to see Shine Global’s latest film, meet the production team, and learn more about child migrant farmworkers in the US and what can be done to help them!
