A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition Film Series
Made in L.A. (Hecho en Los Angeles)

a documentary about the immigrant workers' struggle in honor of International Workers’ Day

Made in L.A. traces the moving transformation of three Latina garment workers on the fault lines of global economic change who decide they must resist. Through a groundbreaking law suit and consumer boycott, they fight to establish an important legal and moral precedent holding an American retailer liable for the labor conditions under which its products are manufactured. But more than this, Made in LA provides an insider’s view into both the struggles of recent immigrants and into the organizing process itself: the enthusiasm, discouragement, hard-won victories and ultimate self-empowerment.

As director Carracedo concludes: “These women’s struggle mattered not just for its own sake but because it served as a catalyst for each of them, in her own way, to stand up and say: ‘I exist. I have rights.’” 70 min., 2007, Spanish and English with bilingual subtitles.
