Harvest of Empire Mon. Oct 21 at 7:30 pm

  • Oct 21, 2013 · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

"The filmmakers retain a touching faith that most Americans won't tolerate injustice when they know about it. This film is meant to teach them." (Rachel Saltz, New York Times)

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, the film examines the political events, social conditions, and U.S. government actions that led millions of Latino families to leave their homelands in an unprecedented wave of migration over the past six decades. A 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.
Q&A journalist Juan Gonzalez with Carola Otero Bracco, Executive Director of Neighbors Link.
This event is part of “Latin Links 2013” a Neighbors Link series celebrating Latin culture, creativity, and community.
Eduardo Lopez/Peter Getzels. 2012. 90 m. NR. USA.
Official Website / Trailer | NY Times review
Tickets: $7 (members), $12 (nonmembers)

This is a one night only event at the Burns and will probably sell out in advance. Please purchase your tickets in advance. You can either purchase at the box office or online.

Please note that WE MEET AT THE MEMBERSHIP DESK IN THE LOBBY BEFORE THE FILM, THEN GET ON THE LINE, AND TRY TO SIT TOGETHER INSIDE. (When you enter the Burns lobby go to the desk adjacent to the stairs. If you can not locate the membership desk, please ask any member of the Burns staff for the membership desk. Please do not ask them for the meetup group as we are not part of the Burns staff but a film group that meets at the Burns. There are only 3 counters/desks in the lobby at the Burns, the membership desk is the one by the stairs and is NOT the one not selling popcorn or tickets.)

Since there will be a Q&A after the film we may not get together afterwards. However, if a group wants to get a drink or just chat about the film, let's plan to meet after the Q&A, again, at the memership desk area. Should be another memorable night at the Burns.
