Chronicling the birth of a modern American movement, Cesar Chavez tells the story of the famed civil rights leader and his commitment to securing a living wage for farm workers. Passionate but soft-spoken, Chavez embraced non-violence as he battled greed and prejudice in his struggle to bring dignity to people. Chavez inspired millions of Americans from all walks of life who never worked on a farm to fight for social justice. His triumphant journey is a remarkable testament to the power of one individual's ability to change the world. The film is directed by Diego Luna and stars Michael Pena, America Ferrera, and Rosario Dawson. It is 102 minutes and rated PG-13.Return to previous page >>
