SYNOPSIS

Harvest of Empire is based on the ground-breaking book by award-winning journalist and Democracy Now! co-host Juan González. Featuring real life stories and rare archival footage, Harvest of Empire is a gripping documentary that reveals the political and social roots that have driven millions to migrate from Latin America to the United States. At a time of heated and divisive debate over federal immigration policy, producers Eduardo López and Wendy Thompson-Marquez felt it was important to offer a rare and powerful glimpse into the enormous sacrifices and rarely-noted triumphs of the millions of Latino immigrants who are transforming the cultural and economic landscape of the nation.
