2 great films exploring the impact of Globalization on the lives of Immigrants . . .

Global Banquet: The Politics of Food (30 min)
. . . exposes corporate globalization’s profoundly damaging effect on our food system, debunking several underlying myths about global hunger. It reveals how agribusiness and trade liberalization undercuts subsistence farmers – who in turn often migrate to work for low-wages as farm laborers in the US agricultural industry.

Morristown: In the Air and Sun (1 hr)
. . . is a working-class look at globalization. From the factories and fields of Morristown, Tennessee to the maquiladoras and hometowns of Mexico, the film weaves together the plight of immigrant workers and US workers in the face of globalization as they all fight for economic justice.

This event is a fundraiser for a Denver Caravan to the Unity March in Greeley (May 2). $5 suggested donation
