Social Sustainability Month: Film Viewing “Maquilapolis”
Wednesday, November 16, 2011 - 2:00pm

Location: 229 Smith

Event Description: "Just over the border in Mexico is an area peppered with maquiladoras: massive factories often owned by the world's largest multinational corporations. Carmen and Lourdes work at maquiladoras in Tijuana, where each day they confront labor violations, environmental devastation and urban chaos. In this lyrical documentary, the women reach beyond the daily struggle for survival to organize for change, taking on both the Mexican and U.S. governments and a major television manufacturer," Excerpt from http://www.pbs.org/pov/maquilapolis/film_description.php.
