"Reveals the beating heart of culture-driven activism...The kind of labor of love that brings recent history into colorful and tuneful focus. And with condition for farmworkers these days hardly tolerable still, maybe this movie can be absorbed as a song "from" Cesar too." — Los Angeles Times
In the 60s and 70s, Cesar Chavez, along with Dolores Huerta and Larry Itliong, united a coalition of farmworkers, activists, and artists to form "La Causa," a vibrant and determined group that served as the foot-soldiers of a movement for workers' rights. A Song for Cesar celebrates Chavez's life and work, as well as the multi-disciplinary arts movement that made the United Farmworkers Movement a force to be reckoned with. Featuring interviews with luminaries such as Dolores Huerta, Maya Angelou, Joan Baez, Carlos Santana, Chavez's relatives, and many others, A Song for Cesar is an essential document of one the the greatest grassroots movements in history, told by those who helped to make it happen.
