Bread and Roses

Some of the most interesting films about North America are often made by outsiders.  That is certainly the case with Bread and Roses, which sees director Ken Loach, together with regular collaborators writer Paul Laverty and producer Rebecca O’Brien, venture to the US to make a film inspired by the ‘justice for janitors’ campaign. The film centres on the experiences of Maya, a migrant worker from Mexico whose work experiences reveal the harshness of the US system and lead her to become involved in the struggle to unionise the workforce.
