Our home country, USA, is one of those countries we love and hate. It's one of those countries where we assume the best and expect the worst. It's one of those countries where we take advantage of everything and complain about everything else. So why not document what is not really known like the hundreds of thousands of children working "our" harvests for less than minimum wage.
THEHARVEST/ LA COSECHA brings to life the story of over 400,000 American
children who are torn away from their friends, family, and school education to
work demanding hours picking crops that feed America. Director U. Roberto
Romano focuses on the lives of migrant farm workers Zulema, Perla, and Victor
(aged 12-16) and captures how their 14 hours a day, 7 days a week on below
minimum wage job requires much individual sacrifice in order for their families
From the preview below, you can tell this will make it to everyone's TV screens. The ALMA NCLR Special Achievement Award
winning movie, executive produced by Desperate
Housewives’ Eva Longoria, is now available on DVD and VOD platforms.
