“Hailing Cesar is a film about my journey to understand the legacy and struggle of my grandfather, the civil rights activist Cesar Chavez. I was only three years old when Cesar passed away. Growing up comfortably in the Bay Area, where my father Fernando was a lawyer, I had difficulty connecting with my grandfather’s life. After a turning point in my life, I began to explore the places, learn about the people, and carry out the activities that were so important to Cesar. My journey included working in the fields, picking grapes, as both my grandfather and father once did. My goal is to share Cesar's message with a new generation. This film is my first step in honoring his legacy.”- Eduardo Chavez
