H2 Worker

Winner of the Grand Jury prize at the Sundance Film Festival,

H2 Worker reveals the systematic exploitation of Caribbean

laborers by the Florida sugar industry from World War II through

the 1990s. Each year more than 10,000 foreign workers were

granted temporary guest worker ("H-2") visas to spend six brutal

months cutting sugar cane near Lake Okeechobee. They were

housed in overcrowded barracks, denied adequate treatment for

frequent on-the-job injuries, and paid less than minimum wage.

Faced with deportation and soaring unemployment in their home

countries, workers had little recourse but to silently accept these

deplorable conditions.

Clandestinely filmed in the cane fields and around the workers'

barracks, H2 Worker exposes this travesty of justice, which

remained a well-kept secret for decades.
