Explore the challenges facing domestic workers in the U.S. today. Join us for a screening of CareForce One Travelogues and a panel discussion with filmmaker Marisa Morán Jahn. This is the first in a series of events celebrating the 25th anniversary of SMLR’s Center for Women and Work.
5:00 – Reception
5:30 – Film Screening
A humorous and touching road tale, the CareForce One Travelogues is a Sundance-supported film featuring the artist Marisa Morán Jahn (Studio REV-), her son Choco, and their buddy Anjum Asharia as they travel from NYC to Miami in a fifty-year old stationwagon, the CareForce One. Meeting up with nannies, housekeepers, caregivers, and allies along the way, this film explores how care intersects with some of today's most pressing issues — immigration, the legacies of slavery, and racial discrimination.
6:00 – Panel Discussion with Marisa Morán Jahn
