Documentary: The fields of Immokalee

A 30 minute film by Samuel George

Follow the daily lives of tomato workers, many of whom are undocumented, from the 5:00am trips to the parking lot in hopes of finding day labor, to work sessions in the scorching mid-day heat, to child detention centers for migrant youth that have been separated from their families. Via these vignettes, the film offers insight into the most volatile political issue of our time.
