America Ferrera: More Movies Like 'Cesar Chavez' Need to Be Made!

America Ferrara steps out for the Cesar Chavez screening with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute at the U.S. Capitol Visitors Center on Tuesday (February 4) in Washington, DC.

This movie needs to be a success because more movies like this need to be made,” the 29-year-old actress said at the screening (via the Washington Post). “You have the platform to make this part of the conversation.”

Cesar Chavez will make its way to the SXSW film festival next month. “So excited for my first time at @sxsw with #cesarchavezmovie” America tweeted about the news.

FYI: America is wearing a Donna Karan dress and Jennifer Fisher jewelry.

    Vieja gorda panzona pierde peso y vistete como una mujer moderna. Enfocate en proyectos diversos, no te segreges o limites a los estereotipos. No porque seas latina tienes que hacer solo peliculas latinas.

    Si, parece tortillera vestida en gala.
