Adios Amor: The Search for Maria Moreno

Project Conexiones presents a screening of director Laurie Coyle's documentary "Adios Amor", which tells the story of Maria Moreno's struggle to organize California's migrant farm workers while raising 12 children. The documentary also interweaves 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, adjunct English instructor Jessica Martinez and BC 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.
