A free screening of Made in L.A. by Almudena Carracedo and Robert Bahar will be shown at the Henry Carter Hull Library on Thursday, January 21, 2010 at 6:30 pm. This free event is a collaboration with Point Of View (POV), PBS’ award-winning non-fiction film series. Registration is not required.

Follow the remarkable story of three Latina immigrants working in Los Angeles sweatshops as they embark on a three-year odyssey to win basic labor protections from a trendy clothing retailer. This Emmy-award winning documentary reveals the impact of the struggle on each woman's life as they are gradually transformed by the experience. Compelling, humorous, deeply human, Made in L.A. is a story about immigration, the power of unity and the courage it takes to find your voice.
