Winner of the Audience Award for Best Documentary at the San Antonio Film Festival, The Harvest/La Cosecha tells the story of 3 of the estimated 400,000 children in the US who leave behind their homes, schools, and friends to pick the food we all eat–without the protection of child labor laws. The lives of these migrant farmworker children and their families is illuminated by the award winning filmmaker U Roberto Romano. The filmmakers, including Executive Producer Eva Longoria, have been to Capitol Hill several times to show the film to members of Congress in support of the CARE act to change child labor laws to protect children working in agriculture.
