SU Hosts Screening, Discussion of ‘Fruits of Labor’
SALISBURY, MD---Salisbury University hosts a screening of the film Fruits of Labor 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 29, in Conway Hall Room 156. A panel discussion with SU faculty follows the screening.
Fruits of Labor is a character-driven account that explores universal themes of how a young woman navigates family obligation and the desire to pursue her dreams in the predicaments of our times. In Ashley’s case, her dream is to be the first in her family to graduate high school and go to college.
Most documentary films about farmworkers look at public personas; Fruits of Labor offers a new narrative about women workers that shows the nuances of how the global food system intersects with gender and family life.
The panel discussion following the film focuses on the lived experiences of a young Latina migrant worker in the U.S. as she navigates the nuances of race, class, identity and politics.
Admission is free and the public is invited.
Those planning to park on campus must register in advance for a free parking pass.
