IMMIGRATION SERIES: "The Guestworker: Bienvenidos a Carolina del Norte," will be screened at 7 p.m. in 204 Newton Hall. Directed by Cynthia Hill and Charles Thompson, it was filmed in the U.S. and released in 2006. Discussants: Representatives of Geneseo's and Brockport's Migrant Centers. "The Guestworker" tells the story of Don Candelario Gonzalez Moreno, a 66-year old Mexican farmer who has been coming to the U.S. since the 1960s as a farm laborer. He is some 20 to 40 years older than all the thousands of Mexican men who work in today's United States' H2A Guest Worker program started in 1986. Despite his age, he continues to work long hours in tobacco, cucumber and pepper fields, sweating and worrying—all for his family, particularly his ailing wife. He says he still wants to work "harder than all the others" as he did when he was a younger man, but now knows he just can't. Yet he is asked back, year after year, because of his commitment to hard work, his "good attitude," and his long-term service to Wester Farms in North Carolina. We follow him through one grueling season, learning about one man's life in-depth, and through this intimate and personal story we learn about this little-known guest worker program now already in existence for 20 years. The Web site for the film is www.docsouth.com.
