Cesar Chavez Film To Be Screened In Phoenix
Thursday at the Orpheum Theatre in downtown Phoenix, a new film about the life of Cesar Chavez will be screened. "Cesar Chavez," with the tag line, "History is made one step at a time," stars Michael Pena and John Malkovich and is directed by Diego Luna. The film is not a documentary but a dramatic depiction.
Jose Cortez, a former Chavez labor organizer, talked about the real Chavez and his impact. Cortez is putting together an event for March 27 to teach younger generations about Chavez.
