“Every year there are more than 400,000 American children who are torn away from their friends, schools and homes to pick the food we all eat… THE HARVEST/LA COSECHA profiles three (young people) as they journey from the scorching heat of Texas’ onion fields to the winter snows of the Michigan apple orchards and back south to the humidity of Florida’s tomato fields to follow the harvest.” – Shine Global
“A straightforward, intimate and heartbreaking chronicle of the 2009-10 farm seasons for three teens, smart and sensitive, who have been following the crops with their parents for as long as they can remember.” – Los Angeles Times
“The Harvest in its modest way calls to mind The Grapes of Wrath.”– New York Times
