    We made this short film in Immokalee Florida (where 1/3 of the tomatoes in our grocery stores are grown). We spent a day with Lupe Gonzalo, a tomato picker and organizer for CIW (Coalition of Immokalee Workers). The Coalition is fighting to change the way our country's tomato laborers are treated, as well as raise their wages by implementing a 1 penny per pound increase of picked tomatoes. Many companies (McDonalds) are working with CIW, but some are holding out (Publix, Chipotle). Please watch and share this short film about Lupe's life. Most likely, there is a wonderful person just like her picking the tomatos you buy at the grocery store. www.theperennialplate.com

    • Fast for Fair Food: The Ones We've Been Waiting For 3-10-2012

      Workers, allies break six-day fast with a little help from nearly 1,000 friends! The six-day Fast for Fair Food ended yesterday outside Publix headquarters in Lakeland, Florida, with a tremendous outpouring of support for the workers and their allies who braved hunger, a scorching sun, rain, and the mute disdain of Florida's largest corporation so that their brothers and sisters in the fields could work and live with a modicum of dignity. From beginning to end, it was a beautiful day.

            Faith Moves Mountains is a spiritual campaign which urges Publix to work together with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers to advance human rights for farmworkers. We believe that with God’s help, Publix’s isolation and hesitation can be transformed into communication and cooperation with the CIW. Won’t you join us?

                a small gauge film by Jen Heuson + Kevin T. Allen produced by Kim Allen *World Premiere, Margaret Mead Film & Video Festival, 2009. Immokalee, My Home is a portrait of life in Immokalee, Florida, heart of industrial agriculture in the United States and home to its largest population of migrant farm workers. Through visits to carnivals, churches, tomato fields, and workers’ homes, a narrative emerges. The surface story is of one community’s struggle for farm worker rights. Florida farm workers live in slave-like conditions. Some are beaten, not given food or water, or not paid. Yet, they continue to come. This is the deeper tale revealed. Ultimately, it is a tale of migration, of immigration, and of the persistent hope for a better life. We use Super-8mm and hand-processing techniques in order to add an extra layer of intimacy to our film. The format, with all its imperfections and filmic interventions, liberates the project from the didactically objective tone typical to activist documentaries. Rather, the film takes audiences on a personal, subjective, experiential journey; it is a trip, not a tale. We celebrate a birthday, ride a carousel, pick tomatoes, and remember a mother making tortillas in a Guatemalan village. We teach English, sing in Creole, and speak in Poptí. Immokalee is our story and our protagonist. It is a place where the human cost of food is lived. With sounds and images, we take you to Immokalee.
