REDWOOD CITY— Screening of California Humanities-supported film Adios Amor: The Search for Maria Moreno at Cinequest Film Festival, on March 9th at 3pm, Century 20 Theater, Screen 10.

Gripping story of a trailblazing heroine that history forgot.

Over 50 years ago, before Dolores Huerta and Cesar Chavez, there was Maria Moreno. In Adios Amor, the discovery of forgotten photographs prompts a search for this unsung heroine, a tenacious woman who sacrificed everything, but her twelve kids, to organize California’s migrant farm workers half a century ago. Her story emerges via a time-traveling journey through California’s agricultural belt. This remarkable story about the migrant workers who put food on all our tables explores enduring questions about whose lives we remember, record, and recognize. – Terra Wood-Taylor

Preceded by the short film: Evidence of Things Unseen; dir. Lukas Augustin; USA; 26 min.
