Made in L.A. makes a mark at the FIA-UGT Union National Conference in Spain

The organizers of the V Congress of the FIA-UGT union recently asked to screen a clip of Made in L.A. and for me to speak about the film. FIA-UGT, one of the two largest unions in Spain, represents 79,000 workers in mining, textiles, energy and chemicals, and so the film connected with the experiences of many of its members. In the 10-minute webcam interview that I sent them, I spoke about the issues in the film and about the ways in which the experiences of immigrant workers in the US resemble emerging trends in Spain. I was truly happy that the Conference, which brought together hundreds of organizers from all over Spain, decided to feature the film and the issues in it, especially because of the difficult situation that immigrant workers now face in a Spain that was particularly hit with the economic crisis...

I was impacted when I saw the photos: "my image" speaking to hundreds of attendees in huge hall!
