Made in L.A. Northen California Tour -KICKS OFF MARCH 1ST

Made in LA
"An excellent documentary... about basic human dignity"
-New York Times

Dear friends,

We're happy to let you know that we will be touring Northern California with our film Made in L.A. during the first week of March!

Made in L.A. follows the remarkable journey of three Latina immigrants working in Los Angeles garment sweatshops as they embark on a three-year odyssey to win basic labor protections from trendy clothing retailer Forever 21. Compelling, humorous, and deeply human, Made in L.A. is a story about immigration, the power of unity and the courage it takes to raise your voice. In English and Spanish with bilingual subtitles. To learn more about Made in L.A., to buy the DVD and to view the trailer, go to

Funded by ITVS, POV and the Sundance Documentary Fund, Made in L.A. aired on the prestigious PBS series POV in September, and we're now engaged in an outreach campaign to bring the film to communities throughout the US. Don't miss our Northern California tour! This is a very beautiful opportunity to come see the film, meet the filmmakers and understand first-hand why so many groups and university departments have come together to bring this film to you!

Please help spread the word and forward to your friends, colleagues and organizations! Si se puede!

Almudena Carracedo and Robert Bahar
