This powerful documentary explores the political events, social conditions and U.S. government actions that lead millions of Latinos to leave their homelands and move to America. From the territorial expansionist policies that decimated the young economies of Mexico, Puerto Rico and Cuba, to the covert operations that imposed oppressive military regimes in the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Nicaragua and El Salvador. Harvest of Empire provides an unflinching look at the origins of the growing Latino presence in the U.S.
