August 12, 2023 @ 7:30 pm

Saturday, August 12th
Location: Albert H. Soliz Library
2820 Jourdan Street
The event is free.
 A film screening of  “Mariposas del Campo” with filmmakers Robin Rosenthal and Bill Yahraus.
The film will be shown outdoors in the library’s parking lot; limited seating will be available. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own seating.

Mariposas del Campo shares the stories of indigenous Mixtec, Zapotec, and Purépecha teenagers from Mexico striving to change their families’ destinies in the strawberry fields of Oxnard, California. Through a stormy year of sanctioned racism and anti-immigrant policies, the documentary captures their journeys-with help from the characters’ own intimate videos-as they navigate cultural identity, parental expectations, economic challenges, and the justice needs of their migrant farmworker community. For young people whose lives have always been steeped in uncertainty, it takes a leap of faith to chase a dream.
