UMass Lowell Emerita Jean Pyle

Middlesex Community College Federal Building Assembly Room
50 Kearney Square, Lowell
Free admission!

Shot clandestinely at a blue-jeans factory in southern China, '"China Blue'" reveals what international retail companies don't want us to see: how the clothes we buy are actually made. Discover the striking parallels of these compelling stories to Lowell in the days of its boarding houses and 'mill girls'. Co-sponsored by Middlesex Community College Cultural Connections, UMass Lowell Department of Regional Economic and Social Development, and the Lowell Film Collaborative.

Please join us for a reception and post-film discussion with guest speaker Jean Pyle.

One Man's Hero7:30PM

131 Middlesex Street, Lowell
Admission: $5

Enjoy delicious dinner and beverages before, during, or after the film!

Don't miss our first event at Garcia Brogan's restaurant in the Hamilton Canal District! Still a bit of a controversial picture (and more renowned in Mexico than in the U.S.), "One Man's Hero" tells the little-known story of the "St. Patrick's Brigade" or "San Patricios," a group of Irish immigrants in the U.S. Army who deserted to Mexico after encountering religious and ethnic prejudice during the Mexican-American War. Co-sponsored by the Irish Cultural Committee, St. Patrick's Church, Garcia Brogan's, and the Lowell Film Collaborative.
