Director Alonso Mayo has this to say about the free 48m documentary: “Mistreated and exploited for decades, a small group of poor and powerless California farm workers led by Cesar Chavez, risk everything when they launch a strike and national boycott against the multimillion-dollar California grape industry. In doing so, they create a national movement to support them in their fight for dignity and justice.


Viva La Causa focuses on one of the seminal events in the march for human rights — the grape strike and boycott led by César Chávez and Dolores Huerta in the 1960s. Viva La Causa will show how thousands of people from across the nation joined in a struggle for justice for the most exploited people in our country — the workers who put food on our tables.”
