THE FIGHT IN THE FIELDS

Cesar Chavez and the Farmworkers' Struggle

Directed by Ray Telles and Rick Tejada-Flores. A prize-winning documentary melds vintage footage with modern interviews to recall Chavez as the humblest of men motivated by the highest of ideals. Main topics: the history of California agriculture, the evolution of an activist, empowerment through nonviolent action, facing violence and injustice from the growers, how Chavez appealed to America's conscience, and the United Farm Workers after his death. A superb 63-page teacher's guide divides the video into five 20- to 30-minute segments and provides detailed lesson plans and reproducible support materials. Lessons are adapted to "younger students" (grades 4–6) and "older students" (grades 7–12.) Color and black-and-white. 116 minutes. Cinema Guild. ©1996.
