"Roma" Film Discussion

The Higgins Labor Program's FILM CLASSics series features important films that probe questions of work, class, economics, identity, politics, daily life, and solidarity. Whether old or new, celebrated or obscure, famous or forgotten, these titles merit presentations in a social setting and on a big screen. 

In conjunction with Ai-jen Poo's visit, the Higgins Labor Program will host a virtual discussion about Alfonso Cuarón’s 2018 film Roma (trailer link is external)that follows the life of a domestic worker in 1970s Mexico.

How does it work?

  1. Watch the film on your own time. Roma is streaming via Netflix (link is external), which requires a subscription. It is also available as a DVD in the Hesburgh Library.
  2. RSVP for the Higgins Labor Film Club Zoom discussion (link is external). You’ll then receive a calendar invite with the Zoom info.
  3. Join the discussion on Sunday, March 7 from 3 to 4 p.m. EDT via Zoom for casual conversation about the movie with an expert from the Higgins Labor Program community.
