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.
