WFF is proud to partner with local groups to present Films Oct. 19 & 23
If you missed our screening of this powerful documentary last year, now's the time to discover the amazing shero María Moreno. We are delighted that Director Laurie Coyle will be returning to Watsonville to present the film.
Synopsis: The discovery of forgotten photographs prompts a search for an unsung heroine: Maria Moreno, a migrant mother of twelve who led a movement for farmworker rights years before César Chávez & Dolores Huerta launched the UFW. ADIOS AMOR tells a personal story with national resonance about the migrant workers who put food on our tables, and explores enduring questions about whose lives we remember, record and recognize. (60 min.)
Synopsis: Eduardo Chávez, grandson to civil rights activist César Chávez, embarks on a personal journey to connect with his grandfather's legacy. He begins work as a farm-worker, picking grapes in the field, like his father and grandfather before him, and learns first hand the kind of work that goes into putting food on our plates. As he reconnects with his family's legacy, we learn about Cásar Chávez's plight to create equality for farmworkers, as well as the current conditions that they face in the fields here and back at home. The Director will be in attendance for a Q&A after the film. (60 min.)
