Hearing Maria’s Voice for the First Time

We hear Maria Moreno’s voice for the first time when her former co-worker, Henry Anderson, finds an old audiotape in which Maria testifies about the poverty and discrimination her family faced while harvesting food for a wealthy nation. She is joined by other farmworkers, whose voices evoke a lost past whose traces emerge in the abandoned shacks and overgrown fields of California’s Central Valley.
