CineCulture will present “Adios Amor – The Search for Maria Moreno” at 5:30 p.m. Friday, May 10, at the Peters Education Center Auditorium in the Student Recreation Center building. The discovery of lost photographs sparks the search for a hero that history forgot.
The first woman farmworker in the U.S. to be hired as a union organizer, Maria’s story was silenced and her legacy buried. With the search for Maria Moreno, Adios Amor raises provocative questions about whose lives we remember and recognize, while inspiring viewers to launch their own journeys of discovery into the past.
Director and producer Laurie Coyle and featured interviewee Gilbert Padilla will host a discussion following the screening. The film is in Spanish with English subtitles. Parking is free in Lots P3 and P2. The screening is sponsored by the College of Arts and Humanities, Arte Américas, California Humanities, El Concilio de Fresno, Radio Bilingüe and Valley Public History Initiative.
