Join Latino migrant workers and Vermont film makers on Friday, March 22, from 3:00 – 4:30 pm in the Student Center, Madison St. Lounge (behind Bean & Bagel) as they show the new documentary “Hide.”
This film takes us inside the daily lives of several migrant dairy workers from Latin America who sustain Vermont’s iconic dairy farms and working landscapes. Hide illuminates the feelings and experiences of the hidden lives of migrant farmworkers–feelings of isolation, fear, lack of recognition and sometimes hope. Using an unusual narrative form, the film combines original music, obscured images, and multi-voiced narration to provide an intimate glimpse at the daily lives of migrant workers and their fight for dignity.
The film showing will be followed by a discussion (with Spanish translation) led by Migrant Justice and migrant farm workers.
This is great for classes dealing with diversity, modern languages, economics, agriculture, sustainability, labor issues, human rights, migrant workers, film, anthropology/sociology, domestic Fair Trade… Send your students for extra credit (or as a required assignment) and we will sign attendance sheets or collect names saying they were present.
“If you are drinking milk in the morning or in the night. Don’t forget that me and thousands and thousands of guys are milking the cows for you.”–Bernadino Hernandez in “Hide”
