Cine Acción Screening of Cesar’s Last Fast
Wednesday, April 1, 5:30PM, Intercultural Center

In 1988, Cesar Chavez embarked on what would be his last act of protest in his remarkable life. Chavez began his "Fast for Life," a 36-day water-only hunger strike, to draw attention to the horrific effects of unfettered pesticide use on farm workers, their families, and their communities. Using never-before-seen footage of Chavez during his fast and testimony from those closest to him, directors Richard Ray Perez and Lorena Parlee weave together the larger story of Chavez's life, vision, and legacy.
