“The Cleaners is a documentary short that follows the story of three immigrant workers who clean for a large department store chain in Tucson, Arizona. After over a year being paid less than the minimum wage, the women decide to demand their right to fair pay. With the help of law students from the Workers’ Rights Clinic at the University of Arizona, these brave women take on mounting risks as they fight to enforce their legal rights. The film shows the powerful work being done by the Workers’ Rights Clinic, as well as the difficulty and stress immigrant low-wage workers face when fighting abuses in the workplace. This film was made by Lisa Molomot and a class of undergraduate students studying law and film-making at the University of Arizona. (Dir by Lisa Molomot, 2018, USA, 30 mins., Not Rated)”

    This show was SOLD OUT by the time we got there tonight. Glad to see that publicity worked and all 100 seats were taken in theater 3, for a free local Tucson movie and reception. Maybe the Loft will show it again on the Big Screen.
