César's Last Fast

Thursday Oct 7, 2010 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM This is a past program

Sundance Institute Documentary Film Program presents a Work-In-Progress screening of the documentary film César’s Last Fast, a film about the private sacrifice behind César E. Chávez’s struggle for the humane treatment of farm workers, and the impact his inspirational legacy has had on a new generation of activists, organizers, and community leaders. Following the screening, Academy Award-nominated actor Edward James Olmos will host a panel discussion featuring César Chavez’s son, Paul Chavez, the filmmakers, and Dr. Mario Garcia, author of The Gospel of César Chavez.
