Description

Marissa Aroy’s remarkable documentary DELANO MANONGS sheds light on the Filipino farmworkers behind the Delano Grape Strike in 1965. Later the Manongs (a respectful term for older man in Tagalog) joined forces with the Chicano movement leader César Chávez and other ethnic workers, to found the United Farm Workers Union (UFW). Infused with archival footage, DELANO MANONGS chronicles the historic incidents in the history of American farm labor, rediscovers the Filipino immigrants’ fearless endeavors since they landed in the country early 20th Century, and profiles the individual farming heroes whose legacies remain relevant and inspiring even today.
