At a popular bakery café, residents of New York’s Upper East Side get bagels and coffee served with a smile 24 hours a day. But behind the scenes, undocumented immigrant workers face sub-legal wages, dangerous machinery, and abusive managers who will fire them for calling in sick. Mild-mannered sandwich maker Mahoma López has never been interested in politics, but in January 2012, he convinces a small group of his co-workers to fight back. Co-sponsored by USD's Changemaker HUB.

This film screening is a part of the USD Just Read! program in collaboration with many partners across campus. Watch this film regarding migration, one of the topics for the 2019-20 USD Just Read! theme "Defining What is Home? Homelessness, Displacement and Migration."

Check out The Hand That Feeds trailer from Jubilee Films on Vimeo.

The film screening will be followed by a 20-minute discussion facilitated by Dr. Victor Carmona, assistant professor in Theology and Religious Studies.
