Michael Pena (World Trade Center, End of Watch, American Hustle) tackles the title role in Cesar Chavez, a dramatic film based on the life of the activist and directed by Diego Luna. The cast also includes America Ferrera, Rosario Dawson, and John Malkovich. Expect to see Cesar Chavez in theaters on March 28, 2014.
Chronicling the birth of a modern American movement, Cesar Chavez tells the story of the famed civil rights leader and labor organizer torn between his duties as a husband and father and his commitment to securing a living wage for farm workers. Passionate but soft-spoken, Chavez embraced non-violence as he battled greed and prejudice in his struggle to bring dignity to people. Chavez inspired millions of Americans from all walks of life who never worked on a farm to fight for social justice. His triumphant journey is a remarkable testament to the power of one individual’s ability to change the world.
