Higgins Labor Film Club: Bread and Roses (2000)

Sunday, November 8, 2020 - 4:00pm

Miss going to the movies? So do we, but we’ve come up with the next best thing. The Higgins Labor Program has selected four great films showcasing the work and activism of four female protagonists fighting for social justice from different eras of American history.

How does it work?

Step 1: Watch the film on your own time. Notre Dame faculty, staff, and students can access the film through the Hesburgh Library.

Step 2: RSVP for the Higgins Labor Film Club Zoom discussion. You’ll then receive a calendar invite with the Zoom info.

RSVP

Step 3: Join us on a Sunday afternoon for casual conversation about the movie with Notre Dame faculty expert Jaime Pensado, Associate Professor of History

About the film Bread and Roses

In Bread and Roses (2000), a young Mexican woman, Maya (Pilar Padilla), joins her sister in Los Angeles where both work cleaning a downtown building. After beginning her work, Maya meets Sam, an organizer for the janitor's union. Maya joins him in the fight for better wages and benefits while risking her job and earnings.
