For decades, migrant workers have worked the fields of Immokalee, harvesting tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, oranges and other produce that is then shipped across the United States of America.

Many of the workers are undocumented, and attempting to keep their jobs even as federal migration crackdowns hover over the town.

The Fields of Immokalee film follows the daily lives of tomato workers, from the 5:00am trips to the parking lot in hopes of finding day labor, to work sessions in the scorching mid-day heat, to child detention centers for migrant youth that have been separated from their families. Via these vignettes, the film offers insight into the most volatile political issue of our time.

The film is part of the Swing State Florida series, investigating critical issues and communities that could determine the winner of the 2020 Presidential Election.
