Movie Reviews

A fantastic documentary, finally available on DVD
T. Messler | New York, NY | 05/07/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"H2 Worker is a powerful documentary about sugar cane harvesting in Florida, America's flawed and abusive guest worker program and the Jamaican laborers it exploits who come every season hoping to make enough money to provide for their wives, children and families. This is an artfully crafted film, beautifully shot and fluidly edited. Very few films - documentary or narrative - use music so well. Now that H2 Worker is available on DVD you shouldn't pass up the chance to see it."
