Harvest of Empire
DCTV (87 Lafayette, Manhattan)
7:30pm doors, 8pm start

Adapted from the landmark book written by award-winning journalist and Democracy Now! co-host Juan González, Harvest of Empire is a powerful documentary that exposes the direct connection between the long history of U.S. intervention in Latin America and the immigration crisis we face today. From the territorial expansionist policies that decimated the young economies of Mexico, Puerto Rico and Cuba, to the covert operations that imposed oppressive military regimes in the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Nicaragua and El Salvador, Harvest of Empire provides an unflinching look at the origins of the growing Latino presence in the United States.
