Every year more than 400,000 American children are torn away from their friends, schools, and homes to pick the food we all eat. Zulema, Perla, and Victor labor as migrant farm workers, sacrificing their own childhoods to help their families survive. The documentary profiles their journey from the scorching heat of Texas’s onion fields to the winter snows of the Michigan apple orchards and back south to the humidity of Florida's tomato fields as they follow the harvest.
A discussion with Prof. Dr. Ursula Prutsch, LMU München will follow the screening.
Free and open to the public.
