Come to a free screening of the film “Cesar Chavez,” and hear a conversation with director Diego Luna (Y Tu Mama Tambien).
Free, but tickets are required. Tickets will be available from noon to 5:30 pm on March 5 at the Cal Performances box office at Zellerbach Hall. There is a limit of two tickets per person and tickets must be picked up in person.
After the screening, CLAS director Harley Shaiken will moderate a conversation with the film’s director Diego Luna, current UFW president Arturo Rodriguez, and Maria Echaveste, a lecturer at the UC Berkeley Law School.
The film tells the story of the late Cesar Chavez, a migrant farmworker, labor leader, civil rights activist and the iconic co-founder of the United Farm Workers of America (UFW) campaign, known for its effective headline-generating non-violent labor strikes and protests, resulting in passage of the historic California Agricultural Labor Relations Act, which gave farm workers the right to collective bargaining.
Audience members must be in their seats by 6:50 pm. Any empty seats will be filled. Note that due to other campus events on the same evening, attendees are strongly encouraged to arrive early.
