Select PBS stations are re-airing POV’s 2007 Emmy-winning film, Made in L.A., this week. (Check your local listings for day and time.) Since it’s been over two years since we’ve heard about the film’s subjects Lupe, Maura and Maria we asked filmmakers Almudena Carracedo and Robert Bahar to send us news about the women, the film and the campaigns for humane immigration reform, low-wage workers and women’s empowerment that they and the film’s subjects are involved in.
They had a lot to report. Since Made in L.A. aired on POV, the film has picked up a number of awards, including a News and Documentary Emmy Award for Outstanding Coverage of a News Story – Long Form (pictured right). The filmmakers have traveled the country and the world with the film, which has been screened in festivals in Spain, Israel, Brazil and Korea, among others. And Made in L.A. has made it’s way all the way to Capitol Hill, with a screening for a select group of congresspeople involved in immigration reform and policy.
