Screening of Harvest of Loneliness-a documentary about The Bracero Program March 22 4:30pm McConomy

The Department of Modern Languages and the Center for Arts in Society at CMU
are sponsoring the screening of a documentary about the Bracero Program,
"Harvest of Loneliness". The film will be shown on March 22 at 4:30pm in
McConomy Auditorium and will be followed by a Q&A session with one of the
directors Vivian Price. It is a free event open to the community. The
documentary explores historical accounts of migrant Mexican farm workers
brought into the U.S. from 1942-1964 under the temporary contract worker
program known as the Bracero Program. The film is an extension of research
done by Prof. Gilbert Gonzales (University of California Irvine, Chicano
Latino Studies)into why the program existed and helps situate current
debates about current immigration guest worker programs.
