Adios Amor: The Search for Maria Moreno

Esperanza, UTSA and Trinity University will present Adios Amor: The Search for Maria Moreno, a documentary about the first female U.S. farm worker to be hired as a union organizer. Before Dolores Huerta and César Chávez waged their fights for fair treatment, migrant mother Maria Moreno used a gift for oratory to organize her fellow Mexican-American, Filipino, black and Okie farm workers. But her independent spirit eventually put her in conflict with her union bosses. Laurie Coyle, the film’s director and producer, will participate in a Q&A following the screening.
