The discovery of lost photographs sparks the search for a hero that history forgot—Maria Moreno, a migrant mother driven to speak out by her twelve children’s hunger. Years before Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta launched the United Farm Workers, Maria picked up the only weapon she had— her voice—and became an outspoken leader in an era when women were relegated to the background. — This film will be preceded by the regional mid-length film “The Other Walla”
The Other Walla
Directed by Ethan Graham
“The Other Walla” shows senior year in the lives of two students from Walla Walla High School, as they face challenges unique to first generation college students from immigrant families.
