Mexican workers make up 80 percent of the labor force in the United States’ carnival industry, and for three decades nearly all of them have been recruited by one person using the controversial H-2B Visa program. New regulations have begun to put a strain on this arrangement, jeopardizing both the industry and the livelihoods of those who service it. Explore a nuanced, intimate view of this process and industry, where the search for better opportunities, the potential for exploitation, and the viability of struggling businesses collide.

Co-presented by Cinema Tropical
