This is the story of how labor leader Cesar Chavez and the United Farmworkers Union (UFW) formed an alliance with musicians and artists to help build a movement called “La Causa.” The documentary, through the first person accounts of artists, musicians, members of Cesar’s family and other key figures of the movement explores how Cesar’s life and struggle sparked music and the arts to interact with this social movement, each influencing the other to create cultural trends and impact historical events.
“Song for Cesar: The Music and the Movement” depicts how this collaboration helped Cesar Chavez in his fight to raise the consciousness of a nation and improve the working and living conditions of farmworkers and their families. Cesar’s legacy and the story of the people who work so hard put food on our tables must be passed on to future generations.
The film includes members of Cesar's family and other figures from this significant historical movement.
