First trailer for Cesar Chavez, starring Michael Pena


Si se puede.

Latinos don't have a lot of widely accepted historical icons. While we have our own, few have their names reach outside the Latino community. For example, Cesar Chavez was a farm worker in the 60s who organized a strike. When those strikes became violent, he vowed to go on a hunger strike as a pledge of nonviolence. Maybe it's the current cultural climate or Hollywood's current love for biopics, but Cesar Chavez is finally getting his due. 

The film is directed by Diego Luna and stars Michael Pena as Chavez as the trailer basically sets up the strike. Cesar Chavez hits theaters March 28th and it's definitely one I'll be looking out for.
