/A film series on the Latin American immigration experience


The Guestworker (Hill, 2006)

         Having spent the last 40 years harvesting American crops,
      Candelario Gonzalez Moreno (Don Cande) is now a guestworker in the
      U.S. Government's H-2A Visa Program. While he has made the trip
      illegally many times before, the program ensures him safe passage
      but offers no hope of citizenship and the benefits that go along
      with it.

          Filmed on both sides of the border, The Guestworker: Bienvenidos
      a Carolina del Norte chronicles Don Cande's life while looking at
      the H-2A program from contrasting perspectives. The film shows the
      pressure on farmers to produce their crops and documents the
      struggle farmworkers face to secure a future for their families 	 
back home in Mexico.
