UCR ARTS at Riverside—Partner Screening of Adios Amor: The Search for Maria Moreno
March 31 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pmFree
UCR ARTS—On March 31, join UCR ARTS in Riverside for an evening screening of ADIOS AMOR: THE SEARCH FOR MARIA MORENO (2018). This free event includes a post-film Q&A with filmmaker Laurie Coyle. In ADIOS AMOR, the discovery of lost photographs sparks the search for a hero that history forgot—Maria Moreno, a migrant mother driven to speak out by her twelve children’s hunger. Years before Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta launched the United Farm Workers, Maria picked up the only weapon she had—her voice—and became an outspoken leader in an era when women were relegated to the background. The first farm worker woman in the US to be hired as a union organizer, Maria’s story was silenced, and her legacy buried—until now.
