Today’s 2014 Sundance Film Festival trailer puts a focus on the life and sacrifice of an icon of American labor: Cesar Chavez.
The documentary "Cesar’s Last Fast" chronicles Chavez’ career-long struggle to improve the treatment of America’s farm workers. The specific focus is on Chavez’ 1988 "Fast for Life," a 36-day water-only fast that Chavez endured as an act of penance — for, in his view, not having done enough to stop growers from spraying pesticides on farm workers.
The movie uses never-before-seen footage, and incorporates stories of Chavez’ life and the struggles of today’s farm workers.
