In the 1970s, 1500 organized workers of Puerto el Triunfo–mostly women–thanks to their struggles were among the more privileged laborers in El Salvador. Then state repression eliminated union leaders or drove them into exile. By 1990, the fishing industry collapsed. The film provides a window into the effects of neoliberalism. Jeffrey Gould, the director of “Port Triumph,” will introduce the film. He is associate director of the CDRP and Rudy Professor of History.
