"Harvest of Empire" plays in Houston at the Sundance Cinema, 510 Texas Ave., from May 3 through May 10. Click here for details. See the film play in Philadelphia this coming May 10-17.

The new documentary is based on Democracy Now! co-host Juan Gonzalez’s groundbreaking book, Harvest of Empire,, which takes an unflinching look at how U.S. economic and military interests helped trigger an unprecedented wave of migration.

Visit HarvestofEmpireMovie.com for a full list of upcoming screenings of the film around the country.

The film recently won an award for the best use of archival footage at the International Documentary Awards ceremony in Los Angeles. It uses rarely seen archival material to reveal the direct connection between the long history of U.S. intervention in Latin America and today’s immigration crisis.

Watch this interview with González and the film’s co-director, Eduardo López.
