Great historical documentary about farm workers and the bracero program
14 February 2019 | by rigovegaSee all my reviews

A powerful documentary with important footage of migrant farm workers. This is one of the best, if not the best documentary that I have seen that touches this subject. It is a part of history that not enough people know about. I'm glad this was made and preserved to be used in this important historical document.
