The Harvest wins Audience Award for Best Documentary at San Antonio Film FestivalJune 30, 2011
The Harvest, co-produced by Mighty Picture’s Charlie Sadoff and edited by Mighty’s Nick Clark was given the Audience Award for Best Film at the 2011 San Antonio Film Festival. This award follows the Best Director Award given to Robin Romano earlier this week.
THE HARVEST/LA COSECHA tells the stories of 3 of the estimated 400,000 children who work in the US fields without the protection of child labor laws. To help their families survive, they leave behind school, friends, and their home to travel across the country looking for work – grueling, tiring, dangerous work- picking the produce we all eat. Under current US Child Labor laws, children 12 years of age and older are allowed to work in the fields without the same restrictions that protect other children in any other industry. THE HARVEST joins these children and their families for the 2009/2010 harvest season as they face dangers on the road and in the fields, joyful family reunions, and sometimes tragedy.
The film is produced by Shine Global and will make its theatrical debut this summer from distributors Cinema Libre.
