The Harvest / La

More than 400,000 children in the United States are torn away from their schools and homes to work as migrant workers with their families.

The documentary, “The Harvest/La Cosecha: The Children Who Feed America”, produced by long time actress and activist, Eva Longoria, and Shine Global, the Academy-Award nominated producers of War/Dance, 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.” The award-winning documentary profiles three children, Zulema, Perla, and Victor, on their journey from the heat of onion-fields of Texas to the bitter cold of apple orchards in Michigan finally ending in the humid tomato fields of Florida.
