The award winning movie, Cesar Chavez, makes history by opening in theaters nationwide on March 28th! Sneak peeks were released all over the country and the reviews are rolling in. His Eminence, Timothy Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York stated:
“I finally had the chance to watch Chavez, and it was worth the wait! I’ve always considered him a prophet, preaching and exemplifying the best in Catholic social justice and American civil rights. This fine movie only confirmed that high estimate.”
Actress Rosario Dawson, who plays Dolores Huerta in the movie, stated, “This film is not just a celebration about historic movement in our time, it is not just a history lesson. It’s a provocation.” She hopes that the next time people sit down for a meal, they will contemplate who picked their food (www.nbcnews.com).
