The Hand That Feeds: Migrant Workers' Poetry, Performance, and Film, CUNY


The Graduate Center, The City University of New York presents The Hand That Feeds

Friday, October 30, 6:30pm
Segal Theatre, The Graduate Center, The City University of New York
Post-screening Q&A with the filmmakers and Mahoma López

Join us for a poetry reading and performance by worker writers, followed by a screening of The Hand That Feeds, a documentary about the behind the scenes world of an Upper East Side bagel shop, where undocumented immigrant workers face sub-legal wages, dangerous machinery, and abusive managers who will fire them for calling in sick.

The screening will be followed by a question and answer session with the directors and Mahoma López, a worker featured in the film who galvanized his co-workers to form an independent union.

Co-sponsored by the Center for Place, Culture, and Politics (CPCP)and the Mellon Seminar in Public Engagement and Collaborative Research in the Humanities.
