BAKERSFIELD– Project Conexiones presents a screening of California Humanities-supported documentary Adios Amor: The Search for Maria Moreno at Bakersfield College on March 28, 2019 6:00- 8:30 pm.

Adios Amor tells the story of Maria Moreno’s struggle to organize California’s migrant farm workers while raising 12 children. The documentary also interweaves director Laurie Coyle’s quest to find photographs and more information about Moreno through the attics and archives of the California Central Valley.

Following the screening, Coyle, Dr. Oliver Rosales and Bakersfield College students affiliated with Project Conexiones will discuss Maria Moreno, filmmaking and storytelling, and the importance of farm workers in America. They will also answer questions from the audience.

ADIOS AMOR: THE SEARCH FOR MARIA MORENO

Director: LAURIE COYLE (DOCUMENTARY, 58:00)

Twenty years ago, Bay Area filmmaker Laurie Coyle discovered hundreds of lost photographs of a farmworker, clearly a mother and union organizer, sending her on a search for Maria Moreno, a hero history forgot. Years before Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta launched the United Farm Workers, this migrant mother was driven to speak out by her twelve children’s hunger. An outspoken leader in the years when women were expected to stay in the background, Moreno was the first female farm worker in the U.S. to be hired as a union organizer. Moreno’s story was silenced and her legacy buried — until now.
