Movie Screening: The Hand That Feeds

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017 @ 17:30 - 19:00

The Society of International Affairs in Gothenburg in co-operation with Cinema Politica welcomes you to the screening of the documentary ‘The Hand That Feeds’ to kick off our focus on minorities!

 

At a popular bakery café, residents of New York’s Upper East Side get bagels and coffee served with a smile 24 hours a day. But behind the scenes, undocumented immigrant workers face sub-legal wages, dangerous machinery, and abusive managers who will fire them for calling in sick. Risking deportation and the loss of their livelihood, the workers team up with a diverse crew of innovative young organizers and take the unusual step of forming their own independent union, launching themselves on a journey that will test the limits of their resolve.

 

‘The Hand That Feeds’ has received numerous awards, including the Audience Award for Best Feature at the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival (NYC, 2014) and the Jury Prize, Best Documentary Feature at the Sidewalk Film Festival (Birmingham, 2014).

 

The screening is free and open to everyone.
