Development of a 60-minute documentary film and design of an accompanying website on Maria Moreno, a California labor activist who worked to organize migrant farm workers 50 years ago.

In "Adios Amor: The Search for Maria Moreno" the discovery of forgotten photographs prompts a search for an unsung heroine Maria Moreno, a tenacious woman who sacrificed everything but her twelve kids to organize California's migrant farm workers fifty years ago. The one-hour broadcast documentary interweaves the filmmaker's quest to find Maria with a time-traveling journey through the archives and attics and of California's agricultural belt. Looking for Maria, a portrait emerges of migrant life today. Through the microcosm of a remarkable migrant mother's life, "Adios Amor" tells a story with national resonance about the farm workers who put food on our tables, while exploring enduring questions about whose lives we remember, record and recognize. The project's web-based digital humanities initiative,, will broaden the scope of Adios Amor's micro-historical approach with interactive content, tools, and resources.
