Andres Cediel talks about his new documentary, “Rape on the Night Shift,” about the sexual abuse of immigrant women in the janitorial industry. It features firsthand accounts from female janitorial workers who say they have been sexually abused by their coworkers and supervisors in the malls where you shop, the banks where you do business, and the offices where you work, and tells the stories of the steep price many women in the janitorial industry pay to keep their jobs and provide for their families.

The film is a collaborative investigation between Frontline, Univision, the Investigative Reporting Program at UC Berkeley, Reveal from the Center for Investigative Reporting, and KQED. Airs June 23 on PBS.
