Movie Info

Cesar's Last Fast is a multi-platform feature documentary film about the private sacrifice and spiritual conviction behind Cesar Chavez's struggle for the humane treatment of America's farm workers, and the impact Chavez's legacy has on today's generation of organizers fighting for farm worker rights. The film is built around powerful, never-before-seen footage of Chavez's 1988 "Fast for Life," a 36-day act of penance for not having done enough to stop growers from spraying pesticides on farm workers. The story of this water-only fast is the film's dramatic arc into which the filmmakers interweave the historic events that defined the life mission of America's most inspiring Latino leader and the struggles confronting today's farm workers.

This occasionally stirring doc portrait of the late Latino labor organizer and civil rights icon frames his legacy around a single act of protest.

April 16, 2014 | Full Review…

Richard Ray Perez and Lorena Parlee co-direct a solidly inspiring portrait of the late agricultural workers' champion.

January 27, 2014 | Full Review…

An inspiring testimony to one of this nation's heroes.

April 18, 2014 | Full Review…

More than this though, the documentary's structure, minimal sense of conflict, and practically zero surprises that are responsible for the viewer's wan engagement.
