An Eye-opening Story of the Children Who Feed America on DVD
Every year more than 400,000 American migrant children are torn away from their friends, schools and homes. This powerful documentary profiles three of these children, Zulema, Perla and Victor, as they sacrifice their own childhoods to help their families survive – journeying from the scorching heat of Texas’ onion fields to the winter snows of the Michigan apple orchards and back south to the humid tomato fields of Florida, following the harvest. Take an intimate look into the lives of children who labor as migrant farm workers and struggle to dream while working 12-14 hours a day, 7 days a week to feed America. ©2011. 80 minutes. English, Spanish. English, Spanish subtitles. Not rated. Middle school and high school.
