"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. Zulema, Perla, and Victor labor as migrant farm workers, sacrificing their own childhoods to help their families survive. Follow these three 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."--Container.

“The Harvest” is a good documentary but it felt somewhat incomplete. Perhaps having the perspective of others- farm owners, government, teachers, etc. -would have helped paint a bigger picture.

The DVD is an excellent depiction of the Migrant child worker. THe DVD also includes lesson plans i(f you put it in a computer).

Overall, I thought it was a good film. I just wish there was more information/ statistics on child migrants workers.

Unbelievable how this family survives. They work hard and have little to show for it. Some members are massively obese, yet they end up having to rely on the food bank and even that doesn't work out. I don't know how many child agro-workers there are in the US so I can't see this is standard practise, but it is a shocking story. If you eat, you should see this one.

buen documental de los jornaleros que a veces los pisotean y esto hace que lo que comemos de vegetables ellos lo recojen

How is an American born child of immigrants supposed to get an education when she is a (more than) full-time agricultural worker?
