New Feature Film About Cesar Chavez Premieres

A new feature film about legendary Farm Worker leader Cesar Chavez will debut March 28 in theaters nationwide, with fundraisers in California and Washington, D.C., the Farm Workers announced.  Details of the premieres are on the union’s website.

Cesar Chavez, An American Hero, shows Chavez as leader of nonviolent protests, marches, strikes and unprecedented boycotts worldwide to gain union representation and better working conditions for farm workers.  Director Diego Luna called the film “the first major motion picture about an icon for Latinos in the United States.  Yet, by genuinely portraying Cesar Chavez as a hero for all Americans, it also tells a story every American should see.”
