Actress and activist Eva Longoria is making the rounds to promote “La Cosecha” (“The Harvest” in English), a documentary that sheds light on an often overlooked tragedy of global food production — the exploitation of child labor.

The documentary, co-produced by Longoria, highlights the plight of three undocumented child farm workers in the United States.

“These children don’t have a voice and so I wanted to the film to be their voice,” Longoria explained after the screening of the documentary yesterday at the International Film Festival in Guadalajara, Mexico. She told the festival attendees that she is especially concerned over the lack of health care and education that the U.S. offers these young workers.

“La Cosecha” appears to be the beginning of the (not so) Desperate Housewife’s career as a documentary producer.  She told her audience in Guadalajara that she plans to produce both feature and documentary films in the future.  We look forward to seeing this doc when it comes to the States and to the other docs she has up her always-classy-designer sleeves. (What topics should Eva tackle next?)
