On Saturday, February 3, Hate Free Delridge and West Seattle Meaningful Movies present a timely film about immigration:
Harvest of Empire
The Untold Story of Latinos in America
Based on the groundbreaking book by award-winning journalist and Democracy Now co-host, Juan González, this film reveals the direct connection between the long history of U.S. intervention in Latin America and immigration today.
Featuring real-life stories and rare archival footage, it examines the events and conditions that have led millions of Latino families to leave their homelands in an unprecedented wave of migration. From U.S. wars for territorial expansion to covert operations that imposed oppressive military regimes, it unveils a story largely unknown to most U.S. citizens.
Some graphic violence. Not recommended for children.
90 minutes; Spanish subtitles
Directed by Peter Getzels and Eduardo López, 2012
Trailer: harvestofempiremovie.com (in both English and Spanish)
After the film, members of Hate Free Delridge will share ideas and facilitate a discussion about how we can support local immigrants.
6:30 – doors open for refreshments and social time
7:00 – movie, followed by optional facilitated discussion
At High Point Neighborhood House
