“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.”
“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.”
