A documentary film showing the injustice of a system in which children are forced to engage in backbreaking labor alongside their parents in order to survive ... in the richest country in the world.

Watch the trailer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYIZy3bHDZs

“Every year there are more than 400,000 American children who are torn away from their friends, schools and homes to pick the food we all eat. Zulema, Perla and Victor labor as migrant farm workers, sacrificing their own childhoods to help their families survive. The Harvest (La Cosecha) profiles these three as they journey from the scorching heat of Texas’ onion fields to the winter snows of the Michigan apple orchards and back south to the humidity of Florida’s tomato fields to follow the harvest.

From the Producers of the Academy-Award Nominated film, War/Dance and Executive Producer Eva Longoria, this award-winning documentary provides an intimate glimpse into the lives of these children who struggle to dream while working 12 – 14 hours a day, 7 days a week to feed America.” —theHarvestFilm.com (English and Spanish with English subtitles, 2011, 80 min.)
