Harvest of Empire

Harvest of Empire is a breakthrough documentary in the way it connects the historical interaction between the US and Latin America with the immigration debate. Using rarely seen newsreel footage and interviews with prominent migrants from countries in the Caribbean, Mexico, and Central America, the film puts a human face on an issue too often reduced to vulgar stereotyping. It has the effect of changing the discourse from one of “illegality” to “historical truth.” Production Notes

Harvest of Empire opened at Regal Majestic Stadium 20 in Silver Spring on March 15th to such good reviews it has been extended for another week.

Holllywood on the Potomac sat down with producer Wendy Thompson and co-director Eduardo Lopez prior to the opening.
