“Product of Mexico” is a four-part multi-media series that documents the harsh working conditions found on Mexican mega-farms. A beautifully-assembled collection of personal stories, “Product of Mexico” exposes the basic inequalities that keep US food prices low, and hold thousands of Mexican men, women and children locked in a modern-day form of bonded labor. Taken as a whole, the series offers an unsettling variant on William Burroughs’ naked lunch, “a frozen moment when everyone sees what is on the end of every fork.”

The presenters:

DON BARTLETTI has been a photojournalist with the Los Angeles Times since 1984. His series of photo essays about young Central American migrants won the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for feature photography. He remains especially dedicated to the causes and effects of economic migration across the southern border of the U.S. and within nearly every state in Mexico. Other documentary subjects have taken him to 23 countries around the globe.

ARMAND EMAMDJOMEH is a Web developer and visual journalist at the Los Angeles Times. When he’s not behind a camera or keyboard, he can usually be seen exploring the streets of L.A. on his bicycle.

TRAILER

ABOUT THE FILM:
At the height of the bullying scandal that rocked the U.S. in 2008, a 15-year-old boy named Larry King asked another boy to be his valentine in a suburban schoolyard in California. The next day Larry was dead, shot in cold blood by his 14-year-old crush Brandon McInerney. At turns shocking, devastating, and outrageous, VALENTINE ROAD bores deeply into the homophobia, sexism, racism, and class-struggle that inform everyday American life—and reveals an American justice system that is utterly unprepared to deal with the realities of teenage crime and punishment. Directed by first-time feature documentarian Marta Cunningham, VALENTINE ROAD is an unforgettable exposé of society’s pervasive and deadly intolerance of young people who don’t conform to its gender “norms.” World premiered at Sundance 2013, this film will both break your heart and fire you up into action.
