Event description
FREE Screening of Adios Amor: The Search for Maria Moreno with filmmaker Laurie Coyle

About this Event

Before Dolores Huerta and Cesar Chavez, there was Maria Moreno. In “Adios Amor,” the discovery of lost photographs taken more than 50 years ago sparks the search for a hero who history forgot: Maria Moreno, a migrant mother who sacrificed everything but her 12 kids in the passionate pursuit of justice for farmworkers. Haunted by a personal tragedy and blessed with a gift for oratory, Maria rolled up her sleeves, collected signatures and electrified audiences. Elected to represent her fellow Mexican American, Filipino, Black and Okie farmworkers, she became the first female farmworker in America to be hired as a union organizer.

Join us after the one-hour film for a conversation with filmmaker Laurie Coyle and David Lindblom film instructor at Northern New Mexico College.
