Documenting the lives of peach pickers in the Central Valley

Hosted by

It's not so unusual to watch food being prepared and eaten on-screen. But what about everything behind-the scenes involved in getting our food to the table? The new film Lupe Under the Sun shows us this side of the story, fixing the lens on the Mexican migrant workers who pick peaches this time of year in California's Central Valley. Our supervising producer Abbie Fentress Swanson talked to the director of the film, Rodrigo Reyes, ahead of its world premiere at the LA Film Festival this Sunday. Reyes based Lupe Under the Sun on his grandfather, a migrant worker from Mexico who worked in fields in and around Merced. Buy tickets for Lupe Under the Sun here.
