By Made in L.A.
September 24, 2013
This week, Made in L.A. makes its Digital Premiere in celebration of Latino/a Heritage Month! YOU CAN WATCH IT NOW ON: iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Microsoft Xbox, and Vimeo On Demand. And it will soon be available on Google/YouTube, Sony Playstation, SundanceNow, and Vudu. The Vimeo launch is especially exciting because it makes the film available worldwide and includes a Q&A with the filmmakers and Lupe, one of the protagonists, as a special feature!
We are excited that the digital release will bring Made in L.A. to new and diverse audiences and that it will greatly increase access to the film. We truly hope that it will touch their hearts and foster greater understanding of the struggles that immigrant workers face in this country.
Made in L.A. is making its digital premiere through the Sundance Institute's #Artist Services program, which provides Institute-supported artists with opportunities for self-distribution, marketing and financing solutions for their work.
Made in L.A. is an Emmy award-winning feature documentary that follows the remarkable story of three Latina immigrants working in Los Angeles garment sweatshops as they embark on a three-year odyssey to win basic labor protections from a trendy clothing retailer. In intimate verite style, Made in L.A. reveals the impact of the struggle on each woman’s life as they are gradually transformed by the experience. Compelling, humorous, deeply human, Made in L.A. is a story about immigration, the power of unity, and the courage it takes to find your voice.
