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, www.MiHistoria.com, will broaden the scope of Adios Amor's micro-historical approach with interactive content, tools, and resources.

Production of a 60-minute documentary film and an interactive website exploring the role of Maria Moreno in the 20th-century U.S. migrant labor movement.

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 migrant farm workers fifty years ago. The filmmaker's quest to find Maria becomes an exciting journey whose missing clues and dramatic twists reveal a hidden story with universal resonance about the people who put food on our tables. Through its innovative docu-detective approach, "Adios Amor" will inspire viewers to launch their own journeys of discovery, while exploring provocative questions about whose lives we remember and record. The film's companion website MiHistoria.net will broaden the scope of Adios Amor's "micro-historical" approach with digital humanities content, interactive tools, image galleries, and a participatory story archive. The goal of the site is to provide a platform to gather many small narratives and connect them to broader historical narratives in a nuanced, robust way.
