UCSB Multicultural Center presents The Hand That Feeds

Wednesday, October 28, 6pm
MCC Theater, University Center Room 1504, Santa Barbara, California
Post-screening Q&A SKYPE SESSION with filmmakers Robin Blotnik and Rachel Lears

Behind the scenes in New York City’s eateries, undocumented immigrant workers confront sub-legal wages, dangerous machinery, and abusive managers. Previously uninterested in politics, sandwich-maker Mahoma López led a group of co-workers in a fight against these workplace conditions in January 2012. The ensuing power struggle turned a city block into a battlefield in America’s new wage wars. A Skype Q&A session with filmmakers Robin Blotnik and Rachel Lears will follow this “captivating David and Goliath story” (Indiewire).
