After I PIck the Fruit is a feature documentary produced and directed by Nancy Ghertner.

The film follows the lives of five immigrant farmworker women over a ten-year period as they labor in the apple orchards of rural western New York, migrate seasonally to Florida, raise their families, and try to hide from the Bush-era immigration raids that were conducted in response to 9/11. Filmed in New York, Florida, and Mexico, this intimate, bittersweet, feature-length film illuminates a community that is nearly invisible to most Americans, and will change the way you look at our national “immigration problem.” The film's running time is 93 minutes.

At this time a distribution DVD is in production, and when available will be for sale on the film's website. All proceeds from the presentation of the film, or DVD sales are donated to: Migrant Support Services of Wayne County, a not-for-profit organization which supports the lives of migrant families in Wayne County, New York.
