CESAR CHAVEZ: A Conversation with Director Diego Luna


Diego Luna discusses the making of “Cesar Chavez.”

When I was 15 years old, I remember seeing images of the funeral of Cesar Chavez… that amazing image of thousands of farmworkers walking with the wood box that held Cesar’s body. Even in his funeral, he was sending the right message. He was sending the message that he was just another person in the movement.
