Directed by Diego Luna, the award-winning drama Cesar Chávez chronicles the birth of a modern American movement led by famed civil rights leader and labor organizer, Cesar Chávez. Torn between his duties as a husband and father and his commitment to bringing dignity and justice to others, Chavez (Michael Peña) embraced non-violence as he battled greed and prejudice in his struggle for the rights of farm workers. His triumphant journey is a remarkable testament to the power of one individual’s ability to change the system. Also starring America Ferrera, Rosario Dawson and John Malkovich. (Dir. by Diego Luna, 2014, USA/Mexico, in English and Spanish with English subtitles, 102 mins., Rated PG-13)
