Untold story of Latinos in America
|責任：||Onyx Films, EVS Communications and Loquito Productions present ; in association with Getzells Gordon Productions ; directed by Peter Getzels & Eduardo López ; produced by Wendy Thompson-Marquez & Eduardo López.|
This powerful documentary exposes the direct connection between the long history of U.S. intervention in Latin America and the immigration crisis we face today. From the territorial expansionist policies that decimated the young economies of Mexico, Puerto Rico and Cuba, to the covert operations that imposed oppressive military regimes in the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Nicaragua and El Salvador, Harvest of Empire provides an unflinching look at the origins of the growing Latino presence in the United States. Adapted from the landmark book written by journalist Juan Gonzalez, the film tells the story of an epic human saga that is largely unknown to the great majority of citizens in the U.S., but must become part of our national conversation about immigration.
