Mariposas del Campo Documentary Screening

Pre-event music with Juan Mendoza and bar will start at 2 pm. Event formally starts at 3 pm.

Mariposas del Campo, an award-winning film by Bill Yahraus and Robin Rosenthal, shares the stories of indigenous Mixtec, Zapotec, and Purépecha teenagers from Mexico striving to change their families’ destinies in the strawberry fields of Oxnard, California. The documentary captures their journeys—with help from the characters’ own intimate videos—as they navigate cultural identity, parental expectations, economic challenges, and the justice needs of their migrant farmworker community. For young people whose lives have always been steeped in uncertainty, it takes a leap of faith to chase a dream.

Interpretation provided:
English to Spanish by Amada Irma Perez.
English to Mixteco by MICOP.

Sponsored by the Latino Advisory Committee, Oxnard Film Society, and MICOP (Mixteco/Indigena Community Organizing Project)
