Revealing the story behind the birth of a modern American movement, Cesar Chavez chronicles the life struggles and victories of civil right activist and labor organizer Cesar Chavez.

Just as our current national discourse delves into the deeper issues surrounding employment wages and equality, Diego Luna brings together a critically acclaimed cast to show how one American galvanized social change to deliver justice for a marginalized people, all the while promoting a message of nonviolence.

The film also provides an intimate glimpse into Chavez's family life and the challenges of balancing the call to be a husband, father and leader of a movement.

One man, one mission and one everlasting legacy.  Cesar Chavez opens this Friday, March 28th.

Recent recipient of the 2014 SXSW Narrative Spotlight Audience Award, Cesar Chavez is based on true events, and stars Michael Peña, Rosario Dawson, America Ferrera and Academy Award Nominee John Malkovich.
