Made in LA

Part of the Anti-Sweatshop Film Fest, presented by South Sound Clean Clothes Campaign

The feature event of our festival not only includes the showing of this award-winning film but a discussion with the filmmakers. The documentary itself focuses on the story of three immigrant workers, Lupe, Maria, and Maura, as they toil 14 hours a day in a garment factory in LA for a sub-contractor who avoids minimum wage laws or a safe working environment. Acceptance of these conditions changes as activists from the Garment Workers Center help them to organize and challenge the large retailer whose clothes they sew. Both drama and humor weave this true tale into a powerful story. “An excellent documentary...about basic human dignity.” New York Times “A rousing true story of solidarity, perseverance, and triumph” Variety
