Post-film Q&A with subject Mahoma López!

At a popular bakery café, residents of New York’s Upper East Side get bagels and coffee served with a smile 24 hours a day. But behind the scenes, undocumented immigrant workers face sub-legal wages, dangerous machinery, and abusive managers who will fire them for calling in sick. Mild-mannered sandwich maker Mahoma López has never been interested in politics, but in January 2012, he convinces a small group of his co-workers to fight back. Rachel Lears and Robin Blotnick’s feature on the unionization effort of workers at Hot & Crusty bakery in New York City is “a tribute to American labor…socially conscious documentary filmmaking at its best” –Peter Keough, The Boston Globe.
