Cesar Chavez: La Causa Sigue

Mariposas del Campo shares the stories of indigenous Mix-tec, Zapotec, and Purépecha teenagers from Mexico striving to change their families' destinies in the strawberry fields of Oxnard, California. Through a stormy year of sanctioned racism and anti-immigrant policies, the documentary captures their journeys —with help from the characters' own intimate videos— as they navigate cultural identity, parental expectations, economic challenges, and the justice needs of their migrant farmworker community. For young people whose lives have always been steeped in uncertainty, it takes a leap of faith to chase a dream. 

This event is part of the Center for Cultural Engagement and Inclusion series.
