On the 50th anniversary of the acclaimed 1960 documentary Harvest of Shame by Edward R. Murrow, the Farmworker Advocacy Network (FAN) and Minnow Media present Harvest of Dignity, a documentary exploring the conditions migrant and seasonal farmworkers face in the United States today. Farm and poultry work is some of the most difficult, most dangerous, and most important work in our community. Largely a Latino population of migrants from Mexico and Central America, these workers still face poverty, food insecurity, hazardous working conditions and few protections under the law. North Carolina is home to roughly 150,000 farmworkers and 28,000 poultry workers and their families. The vast majority of the fruits and vegetables and nearly all of the poultry we eat are picked or processed by hand. However, the people who feed our families through their hard work are often among the worst paid and least protected workers in our state.

Using documentary photos and interviews done by Student Action with Farmworkers interns, film footage with NC farmworkers, legislators and educators, and clips from the original Harvest of Shame documentary, this piece focuses on safe places to live, safe places to work, education, and stronger enforcement of workplace laws. This film was produced in collaboration with the Farmworker Advocacy Network’s Harvest of Dignity campaign to reform conditions for NC field and poultry workers.

Brother Towns is a story of two towns linked by immigration, family, and work: Jacaltenango, a highland Maya town in Guatemala; and Jupiter, a coastal resort town where many Jacaltecos have settled in Florida.
Brother Towns chronicles a story of how and why people migrate across borders, how people make and remake their communities when they travel thousands of miles from home, and how people maintain families despite their travel. Because we are all immigrants, this is a universal human story, and a quintessential American one. All of us understand family.
Brother Towns is also a story of local and international controversy. News of undocumented immigrants is familiar in nearly every community across the U.S., and citizens must choose how they respond to this issue.
