Cesar Chavez

March 28th
Directed by Diego Luna this biopic tells the story of Cesar Chavez, legendary Mexican-American civil-rights activist and United Farm Workers co-founder.

Why you should see it: It is not often we have a Latino story told for us by us. Having Luna direct along with the all-star Latino cast, makes for an authentic and powerful film to truly pay homage to a Latino hero. The cast includes Michael Peña as Cesar Chavez, America Ferrera as Helen Chavez and Rosario Dawson as Dolores Huerta.
