About the event

Join us for an evening of short documentaries that focus on women and labor. This event will also kickoff a crowdfunding campaign for the film Mujeres Atrevidas, by Cynthia Tobar. This evening's theme will be centering women and women-identified Latin voices as we reflect on their roles and impact on the labor movement in the US via grassroots documentary film/media. Mujeres Atrevidas (Bold Women) centers on immigrant women's experiences directly informing this moment in the labor movement. Weaving together moving interviews and vérité footage that tell of their daily working lives and struggles, Mujeres Atrevidas takes the audience through the journey of how these female delivery workers, construction workers, and day laborers find community and empowerment to overcome obstacles and tap into their inner strength to organize for themselves. With this film, our ultimate goal to intertwine participatory documentary and participatory design methods for female-identifying, low-income immigrant workers to embrace wonder in reimagining what gig worker technology platforms could and should look like to foster well-being and agency. We'll start the evening with music by Rebecca McCartney, a screening of the short work-in-progress of Mujeres Atrevidas, followed by a panel discussion moderated by cinema studies scholar and educator Gina Marchetti with film director Cynthia Tobar, cinema & media studies scholar Diana Flores Ruíz, writer, scholar and editor Mónica-Ramón Ríos and the Workers Justice Project.
