Chronicling the birth of a modern American movement, Cesar Chavez tells the story of the famed civil rights leader and labor organizer torn between his duties as a husband and father and his commitment to securing a living wage for farm workers. Passionate but soft-spoken, Chavez embraced non-violence as he battled greed and prejudice in his struggle to bring dignity to people. Chavez inspired millions of Americans from all walks of life who never worked on a farm to fight for social justice. His triumphant journey is a remarkable testament to the power of one individual's ability to change the world. Written by

Director Diego Luna's picture does more than recount historic events or an epic period in our nation's history. It is more than a movingand trueDavid versus Goliath story.
Cesar Chavez the film does portray the classic battle between farm workers and one of California's richest industries. But it also captures the personal hardships and sacrifices made by Cesar and his family, and by so many other families.
And it captures the spirit and humanity and complexity of a man who, in Cesar's words, taught ordinary people to do extraordinary thingsand in so doing inspired millions of others from all walks of life to social and political activism.
