Guerilla Drive-in Presents: A benefit for Ped X friends, whose office was broken into 4 times in 2 months

Friday October 16th at 7:30 in the SubRosa courtyard, 703 Pacific Ave. $5-$10 donation (no one turned away)

Bread and Roses is a drama about the plight of seemingly invisible office cleaners in contemporary L.A. who often earn as little as $6 a day without benefits. The film opens as Maya, a young Mexican woman, is reuniting with her older sister
Rosa in L.A. after a harrowing cross-border journey. Rosa sets her sister up first with a job as a barmaid, which Maya soon quits after getting repeatedly harassed, and then as a janitor. When her boss demands one month's salary as "commission,"
Maya happens upon Sam Shapiro, a muckraking lawyer and union agitator. This film is remarkable for its prescience -- it was shown a month after a massive janitor's strike ground L.A.'s business community to a halt.

This showing is a collaboration between some Guerilla Drive-In folks and some SubRosa folks to show support for our neighbors and friends in a tangible way. While offers of condolences are meaningful, we also want to put active energy into material support as well. Here is a way you can also offer support, so come on out, tell your friends and kick down some cash! The Computer Kitchen was also broken into, and so send them some love as well!

SANTA CRUZ GUERILLA DRIVE-IN is an outdoor movie theatre under the stars that springs up unexpectedly in the fields and industrial wastelands. Beyond showing great movies and
bringing a broad community together, part of our mission is to help reclaim public space and break down this urban environment. http://www.guerilladrivein.org
