FRUITS OF LABOR by Emily Cohen Ibañez Debuts 10/4


Ashley Solis is a high school senior who must divide her time between school and supporting her family as a second-generation Mexican American. Located in a California working class town, the harshness of agricultural labor in the strawberry fields shares a stark contrast with the beautiful nature and relationship to her spiritual ancestral upbringing. Director Emily Cohen Ibáñez documents Ashley’s life guided by the spirit world through her hardships and joys in modern America. 

FRUITS OF LABOR made its World Premiere at the 2021 SXSW Film Festival.
