The Society for Visual Anthropology presents The Hand That Feeds

Thursday, November 19, 4:45pm
Colorado Convention Center, Room 107, Denver

PROGRAM: 3:15 PM – 6:15PM – LABOR (PART I)

4:45 PM The Hands That Feed, dir. Rachel Lears and Robin Blotnik (1hr 24 mins, USA, 2014)

Synopsis: At a popular bakery café, residents of New York’s Upper East Side get bagels and coffee served with a smile 24 hours a day. But behind the scenes, undocumented immigrant workers face sub-legal wages, dangerous machinery, and abusive managers. Mild-mannered sandwich maker Mahoma López convinces a small group of his co-workers to fight back. Risking deportation and the loss of their livelihood, the workers team up with a diverse crew of organizers and form their own independent union, launching themselves on a journey that will test the limits of their resolve.
