Harvest Season (preceded by Who Speaks for Nature)
Will be preceded by a screening of Who Speaks for Nature (35 mins. – World Premiere)
This film delves into the lives of people who work behind the scenes of the California wine industry during one of the most dramatic grape harvests in recent memory. Mexican-American winemakers and migrant workers are essential to the wine business yet are rarely recognized for their contributions. Their stories unfold as wildfires ignite in Napa and Sonoma counties, threatening the livelihoods of small farmers and winemakers who are already grappling with a growing labor shortage, shifting immigration policies, and the impacts of a rapidly changing climate.
