Cesar Chavez

The premiere of Cesar Chavez was held in Arizona and we checked it out. Chavez was born just outside of Yuma so the Director, Diego Luna, thought it was only fitting for the premiere to be in Phoenix.  

Diego Luna explains that the movie is full of fear, but gives confidence and strength. We talked with Chavez’s son and he tells everyone, children and parents alike, to see this movie. He says there is only strength in numbers and if people forget this story, it will all dissolve and disappear.
