Harvest of Empire

April 13 - April 13 2014 3:00PM - 5:00PM

Harvest of Empire provides a rare and powerful glimpse into the enormous sacrifices and rarely-noted triumphs of our nation’s growing Latino community. The film features present day immigrant stories, rarely seen archival material, as well as interviews with such respected figures as Nobel Peace Prize winner Rigoberta Menchú, the Reverend Jesse Jackson, AC LU Executive Director Anthony Romero, Pulitzer Prize winning writer Junot Díaz, Mexican historian Lorenzo Meyer, journalists Maria Hinojosa and Geraldo Rivera, Grammy award-winning singer Luis Enrique, and poet Martín Espada. Co-Director and Producer, Eduardo López, will be on hand for a conversation before the film.
