The CSRC will present a screening of The Purepecha: Poorest of the Poor on Wednesday, October 13, 3:00–5:00 p.m., in the CSRC Library. The thirty-minute documentary, produced and directed by Cheryl Quintana Leader, traces the struggle of the Purepecha, a group of Mesoamerican people from Michoacán, Mexico, who settled in a dilapidated trailer park, known as Duroville, east of Palm Springs. The film shows Stephanie Maldonado, a sixth grader from Long Beach, as she explores the world of migrant farm-harvesting families in the Coachella Valley. A Q&A session with Ms. Quintana Leader will follow the screening.
