Vicky Funari and Sergio De La Torre talk about the making of their film, Maquilapolis: City of Factories. "The film brings together filmmakers, factory workers and activists from both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border. It's actually more than just a film, it's a project that involves working with factory workers directly in the process of making a film."
Carmen and Lourdes work at maquiladoras in Tijuana, where each day they confront labor violations, environmental devastation and urban chaos. In this lyrical documentary, the women reach beyond the daily struggle for survival to organize for change.
