California Lost: Coachella

In the heat of the desert, more than 30,000 farmworkers have set up makeshift homes in overcrowded trailer parks – often without access to clean water, electricity and sewage systems. Some, like Ana Sanchez, are demanding basic rights to safe living conditions.

I shot, produced and edited this multimedia profile, part of a series I am producing for California Watch called California Lost. The video appeared on The Huffington Post, New America Media,, the SF Chronicle’s iPad app, Mun2 (NBCUniversal’s LA network for Latinos), and several blogs. I also produced a Spanish-language version of the video. Read the print feature by Patti Leigh Brown and learn more about the story.
