Join South Florida PBS for a screening and discussion of the Comida pa' los Pobres. South Florida PBS, Reel South, Firelight Media, and CAAM are eager to present the screening of Comida pa' los Pobres (Food For THe Poor).
Comida pa' los Pobres follows Giovanni, a young Puerto Rican activist, as he confronts the island’s persistent crisis of food insecurity. Motivated by his childhood struggle with hunger, he seeks to inspire his fellow citizens to join a movement of solidarity-oriented work by feeding families and college students through mutual aid efforts – all while facing challenges from local authorities.
The virtual screening will be followed by a virtual discussion with filmmaker Arlene Cruz-Alicea and people who work on the frontlines in Puerto Rico helping feed the poor.
