IntroductionIntroduction by LeRoy Chatfield

Mark Harris is a three-time Academy Award winner for documentary films: The Redwoods (1968); The Long Way Home (1997); and, Into the Arms of Strangers (2001). In 1966, after reading Edgar Z. Friedenbergs article Another America in the New York Review of Books (March 3, 1966) Mark came to Delano to make a documentary film about the Delano Grape Strike, which he entitled: HUELGA!

After the films release in 1967, HUELGA! was shown in international film festivals in Europe, Canada, and the United States. Eventually, it was shown on National Educational Television, the precursor of PBS.

The photos presented in this section were taken by Mark Harris during his sojourn in Delano. The Farmworker Documentation Project is grateful to Mark for making them available to the viewers of this Website. His photos will also be shown at the Cesar Chavez Center in Keene, CA as part of the celebration of the 40th Anniversary of the Delano Grape Strike
