“A straightforward, intimate, and heartbreaking chronicle of the 2009-2010 farm seasons for three teens, smart and sensitive, who have been following the crops with their parents for as long as they can remember.” 
Sheri Linden

Los Angeles Times

“THE HARVEST/LA COSECHA, as it follows a 16-year-old boy and two girls, 12 and 14, through one harvest cycle, depicts their lives as a more or less voluntary indentured servitude and provides a detailed, sometimes heartbreaking, mostly hopeless, portrait of a permanent American underclass.”
