We’re proud to partner with the Immigrant Alliance for Immigrant Justice to present this Emmy award-winning feature documentary. It follows the remarkable story of three Latina immigrants working in Los Angeles garment sweatshops as they embark on a three-year odyssey to win basic labor protections from a trendy clothing retailer. In intimate verite style, Made in L.A. reveals the impact of the struggle on each woman’s life as they are gradually transformed by the experience.
Compelling, humorous, deeply human, Made in L.A. is a story about immigration, the power of unity and organizing, and the courage it takes to find your voice.
