Storyline

A powerful documentary that exposes the direct connection between the long history of U.S. intervention in Latin America and the immigration crisis we face today. From the territorial expansionist policies that decimated the young economies of Mexico, Puerto Rico and Cuba, to the covert operations that imposed oppressive military regimes in the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Nicaragua and El Salvador, Harvest of Empire provides an unflinching look at the origins of the growing Latino presence in the United States. Adapted from the landmark book written by journalist Juan Gonzalez, the film tells the story of an epic human saga that is largely unknown to the great majority of citizens in the U.S., but must become part of our national conversation about immigration.

powerful and stirring, a must-see educational material to promote awareness about the true origins of Latino communities in US
30 September 2012 | by drensopa-490-732656See all my reviews

It is incredibly important that the new generations watch this documentary as it is inspirational and informative.

My personal reaction was of immense emotion: from the beginning till the end I could relate and fully understand the pain of the Latino immigrants, even though I come from Eastern Europe.

Hopefully enough progressive-minded educators expose the truth about the so-called "immigration problem" and fully utilize Juan Gonzales' book to further build lessons and courses on how and why "the most dangerous enemies are not each other, but the great wall of ignorance between us".

Thank you WENDY THOMPSON and EDUARDO LOPEZ for your courage and strength to produce this film despite all obstacles.
