Studio 35 to screen 'Harvest of Empire: The Untold Story of Latinos in America'

See also

The United States government has a long history of harming the people of Latin America: waging wars for territorial expansion, imposing oppressive military regimes, and establishing "free trade" agreements that impoverish workers. Award-winning journalist and Democracy Now co-host Juan González says this at the beginning of the film Harvest of Empire:

They never teach us in school that the huge Latino presence here is a direct result of our own government’s actions in Mexico, the Caribbean and Central America over many decades — actions that forced millions from that region to leave their homeland and journey north."

Based on González' groundbreaking book, Harvest of Empire takes an unflinching look at the role that U.S. economic and military interests played in triggering an unprecedented wave of migration that is transforming our nation's cultural and economic landscape.

On Sunday May 25 at 2 p.m., Simply Living and Clintonville Community Market are screening Harvest of Empire at Studio 35 Cinema and Drafthouse, 3055 Indianola Avenue in Columbus. A $5 donation is requested.

A panel discussion led by immigrant rights organizer Rubén Castilla Herrera will follow the 70-minute film. Gerardo Reyes of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers will be one of the panelists.

For more information, email or call (614) 354-6172. The Facebook event is here.
