Flor (2012)

Flor (2012) HIDVL

A mysterious traveler named Flor appears in a field of California wildflowers overlooking the land identified in author John Steinbeck’s Grapes of Wrath. This collaboration with the South Kern County community of Arvin and the neighboring towns of Lamont and Weed Patch explored the commonalities between the Oklahoma Dustbowl immigrants of the 1930s and more recent immigrants from Mexico and Central America who find themselves in California, also because of strenuous circumstances. Arvin High School staff and administration generously hosted the performances in the school’s auditorium. Community partners and advisors included SouthKernSol.org, FIELD Arvin Learning Center, Arts Council of Kern, Don Burkett, Maria Mercado, Javier Arreola, the García Family, the Martínez Family, Nina Pickett Carter, Larry Hallam, Gene Lundquist, and Dr. Jim Young.
