May 10: Adios Amor – The Search for Maria Moreno
Discussants: Laurie Coyle (Director/Producer) and Gilbert Padilla (featured interviewee/UFW Co-Founder)
Sponsors: College of Arts and Humanities, Arte Américas, California Humanities, El Concilio de Fresno, Radio Bilingüe, and Valley Public History Initiative
In Adios Amor, the discovery of lost photographs sparks the search for a hero that history forgot— Maria Moreno, a migrant mother driven to speak out by her twelve children’s hunger. Years before Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta launched the United Farm Workers, Maria picked up the only weapon she had—her voice—and became an outspoken leader in an era when women were relegated to the background. The first farm worker woman in the U.S. to be hired as a union organizer, Maria’s story was silenced and her legacy buried—until now. With the search for Maria Moreno, Adios Amor raises provocative questions about whose lives we remember and recognize, while inspiring viewers to launch their own journeys of discovery into the past. In English and Spanish with subtitles. 58 minutes.
All films screened on campus are free and open to the public. Parking is not enforced after 4 p.m. on Fridays.
