October 27th – Bread and Roses

The first film in our series on work. Mexican sisters Maya and Rosa work as cleaners in a down town office block in Los Angeles. Pay is low and bullying is common place. A fated meeting with Sam, a passionate American union organiser, leads to an unorthodox and imaginative campaign against their employer. The fight threatens their livelihood, family and risks their expulsion from the country. Bread and Roses is a story about the most marginalised of LA communities daring to take on their corporate bosses against all odds.
