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.

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

Directed by Ken Loach; starring Pilar Padilla

Bread and Roses (2000) is a fictionalization of the Los Angeles Justice for Janitors campaign of the 1990s, focusing on the story of an undocumented Mexican migrant who joins the struggle for greater pay and worker protections. One of the greatest labor movies ever made, the film invites discussion on enduring questions of identity, solidarity, and social justice.
