Joan Baez, Carlos Santana, and Taj Mahal are just a few of the musical luminaries who pay tribute to Cesar Chavez in this new documentary, Song for Cesar, scheduled to screen at the Mill Valley Film Festival.
The movie will play in theaters on Oct. 14 in Berkeley (at BAMPFA) and on Oct. 15 at the Sequoia Theater in downtown Mill Valley.

The Oct. 15 screening will be followed by a live music concert at Sweetwater, a benefit for Cesar Chavez's Foundation and others. Tickets are $285 for the concert.
