“The Hand that Feeds” tells the story of sandwich-maker Mahoma Lopez as he organizes his undocumented immigrant co-workers to fight abusive conditions at a popular New York restaurant chain. The epic power struggle that ensues turns a single city block into a battlefield in America’s new wage wars. Spanish and English with English subtitles. 84 minutes.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with a #FightFor15 worker and organizer, CLAS Chair Harley Shaiken, and UC Berkeley Labor Center Chair Ken Jacobs.
“Filmed with the urgency and suspense of a Hitchcock thriller.” — Diana Clark, The Village Voice
