Cesar’s Last Fast to premiere at 2014 Sundance Film Festival

Cesar’s Last Fast will premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival in the U.S. Feature Documentary Competition.

In 1988, I was very fortunate to have filmed Cesar’s 36 day fast to bring worldwide attention upon the dangers of pesticides: to both farmworkers and all people. The film of his fast became the spine of his life story told by directors Richard Ray Perez and Lorena Parlee. Inspired by Catholic social teaching, Cesar Chavez risked his life fighting for America’s poorest workers. The film illuminates the intensity of one man’s devotion and personal sacrifice, the birth of an economic justice movement, and tells an untold chapter in the story of civil rights in America.
