Review by Salt E. on 05/22/22 review stating More than meets the eye
This documentary was released in June 2013 and run on Texas public television network in April 2014. I would have given this documentary five stars if there had been an interview with a representative of the United Farmworkers included. No abuses were depicted in areas of the US where the union has contracts with agribusinesses. The program discusses a special VISA designation available to undocumented workers who have been victims of crimes, protecting them from instant deportation. The program does not discuss the state and federal laws in place to provide relief to the victims of human trafficking who end up processing food in chilly factory outposts of the US heartland. Nevertheless a good overview and introduction to the general topic of involuntary servitude in the US, sort of a reality riff on Uncle Toms Cabin. One really comes to care about the women who quietly tell their stories. Brought tears to my eyes. Perfect purchase for presentation to a group.
