UPDATE: The film’s distributor is no longer making this film available online on the original link it had posted just a few days ago. If you want to want to watch the full film, you can rent it on YouTube.

“Harvest of Empire,” a film exploring the root causes of our refugee crisis, is now available online, free of charge. (H/T to our friends at Dream Action Coalition). This 2012 documentary is particularly relevant today as we face the growing refugee crisis in the border.

Here is the full film. Here is the trailer:

“Harvest of Empire” is a documentary that examines the role that U.S. military and corporate intervention in Latin America played in triggering massive waves of migration from Mexico, the Caribbean and Central America.  Based on the groundbreaking book by journalist Juan González of Democracy Now!, the film also offers a powerful glimpse into the enormous sacrifices and rarely noted triumphs of the millions of Latino immigrants who are transforming the nation’s cultural, economic and political landscape. Featuring rarely-seen newsreel footage and perspectives from notable U.S. and international leaders, this film will appeal to all those who have an opinion about immigration.
