Cesar's Last Fast at the NALIP Media Summit


In June, the NALIP Media Summit will have an exclusive conversation that will cover the challenges, the funding, and the secrets behind the release around this amazing story. Cesar’s Last Fast: A Case Study of the Film’s Rough Road to Sundance will discuss how producing this independent feature documentary about Cesar Chavez took longer than the 5-year grape boycott that forced growers to sign labor contracts with Chavez’s labor organization in 1970. Join Richard Ray Perez, Producer/Director of Cesar’s Last Fast, as he details the challenges and obstacles that impeded the project; reveals successful strategies used to overcome them; and provides insight on the lesson learned on the 7-year journey from promise, to inertia, to the premiere in the US Competition at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.

Join the discussion Saturday June 7, 2014 at 9:00 am at the NALIP Media Summit 2014! REGISTER TODAY!
