The Fight in the Fields Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

This documentary, told via the reminiscences of his friends and cohorts and mixed with archival footage, pays tribute to the lifetime struggle of late Chicano civil rights activist Cesar Chavez. The film begins with a brief overview of the history of California's commercial agriculture beginning in the 1860s up to the present. It then jumps to Chavez's birth in 1927. Back then his parents owned their own farm, but after the Depression, they lost everything and had to become migrant field workers. It was while serving in the Navy that young Chavez became a follower of Mahatma Gandhi and began developing the forms of non-violent protest that he would use after founding the United Farm Workers Union in 1962. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
