A Day on the Bay (Italian Immigration)

Day on the Bay, A (Italian Immigration)

"Highly Recommended. Documents an era when devotion to family and a way of life tied to the sea bound a community together." -San Francisco Chronicle
Immigration has been a topic of conversation ever since the United States became a country; millions upon millions of Americans can trace their ancestry to immigrants who left their various homelands in an attempt to find a better life in this country. In California everyone's heard of the Gold Rush days, which began in 1849; however, those miners were just the beginning of a massive wave of immigrants to the Golden State. During the mid-19th century, Italian fishermen began to establish themselves and their families in fishing villages up and down the coast from large towns such as San Diego and San Francisco, to smaller ones such as Eureka, Benicia, Martinez, Pittsburg, Monterey and Santa Cruz. These people brought their culture and sense of community with them and by the 1880's Italian fishermen dominated the country's Pacific coastal waters and California had developed into a leading fishery. This classic documentary takes us to Santa Cruz, California, to reminisce about the "good old days"; it uses photos that date back over 100 years, along with insightful 1940 film footage, and poignant interviews with descendants of families who immigrated from Italy, to tell the moving story of the first Italian immigrants who came to California for the opportunity to work and ended up having their colorful "day on the bay." Produced by Ricardo Gaudino, Mark Schwartz.and Geoffrey Dunn. 98/08DE JSCA 30 min.
