"Harvest of Loneliness examines what was known as the Bracero Program—a system put in place from 1942 to 1964 to undermine union organizing by recruiting and exploiting Mexican farm laborers for temporary work in the United States. The film presents extraordinary archival footage and features family members and surviving braceros who typically went north expecting not just good wages but also humane treatment and working conditions—expectations that were rarely met."
