U.S. Premiere Screening. During the 1970s, El Salvador boasted a vast shrimp industry, and nearly all of the 3,700 tons that it exported went to the United States. As shrimp transitioned from luxury status, few Americans would give much thought to how the shrimp reached their plates. Fewer still would have heard of the story of Port Triumph, El Salvador, and the drama of the shrimp industry’s rise and fall. Port Triumph is a microcosm that throws into sharp relief some of the most powerful forces shaping Central America and the obstacles facing organized labor worldwide. In English and Spanish with English subtitles. (2K DCP Presentation)
