On Saturday, Nov. 24, beginning at 4 p.m. the Martha’s Vineyard Film Center (located at the Tisbury Marketplace) is hosting a benefit screening of The Harvest. The event is to help Media Voices for Children, an Island non-profit organization that works to raise awareness of the needs of poor children in the U.S and around the world, through documentary film production, public advocacy and direct action.
The Harvest/La Cosecha is a glimpse into the plight of the 400,000 children who work as migrant laborers on America’s farms through the stories of three adolescents who travel with their families across thousands of miles to pick crops in southern Texas, northern Michigan and northern Florida during the harvest season.
Tickets are available at the door for $10 or $7 for members of the MVFilm Society. Visit mvfilmsociety.com and mediavoices.org.
