Film: César Chávez: History Is Made One Step At A Time

Presented by the Olympia Film Society

Dir: Diego Luna / 2014 / US / 102 min / DCP

César Chávez (played by Michael Peña), a quietly powerful, pioneering labor leader and dedicated pacifist, refusing to be bullied, changed history one step at a time and inspired millions from all walks of life, who had never worked a farm, to fight for social justice. This fictionalized film shows Chavez multilayered, torn between family and the struggle for a living wage and dignity for exploited farm workers. Using archival footage fused with dramatic sequences, the story is briskly told. Failing to make headway leafleting, Chavez loads up his eight kids and wife Helen (America Ferrara) to work in the fields by day, holding organizing meetings by night, building coalitions. When Reagan's California makes it illegal to say "huelga" (strike) in the fields, Helen screams it with chilling passion. Dolores Huerta (Rosario Dawson) works with them, forming what becomes the United Farm Workers. Bogdanovich (John Malkovich) portrays a complicated composite character: grape grower, major landowner, and immigrant. Advocating boycotts and peaceful protests, Chávez begins a 25-day hunger strike to bring growers and workers to the table—a subject that reaches across time.

Olympia Spanish Conversation Meetup

"Casual, fun, relaxing events for getting together and practicing your Spanishmaybe never quite "perfecting" it, but getting just a little bit better each time, while meeting fun, kind, and interesting people (people like you!). Native Spanish speakers who would enjoy helping people learn their language are also welcome!! If you really enjoy using your Spanish, and enjoy meeting other people who like Spanish as much as you do, we would love to have you join us.

We meet on the first and third Mondays of each month, because your weekend is probably already busy, and having something to look forward to on Monday just allows that weekend feeling to last one day longer!"

Location:

Varies. See the Olympia Spanish Conversation Meetup web page.
