Chapter Two examines the relationships between the worlds envisioned in UFW film and video, on the one hand, and visions of Cold War geopolitics on the other. Whereas UFW films from the 1970s connected the union to anti-imperial struggles in the global south, the UFW’s video projects in the 1980s implicitly appealed to U.S. nationalism at a moment of resurgent U.S. imperialism.
