Dolores: Screening Followed by Q&A
Dolores Huerta is among the most important, yet least known, activists in American history. An equal partner in co-founding the first farm workers unions with Cesar Chavez, her enormous contributions have gone largely unrecognized. Dolores tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice alongside Chavez, becoming one of the most defiant feminists of the twentieth century—and she continues the fight to this day, at 87. With intimate and unprecedented access to this intensely private mother to eleven, the film reveals the raw, personal stakes involved in committing one’s life to social change.
Dolores is finally receiving deserved recognition as “one of the great heroes of our time” (SF Chronicle) as Peter Bratt’s film sets the record straight and shows how she “has made activism an art form” (New York Times). See for yourself how Dolores “defines indefatigable” (Chicago Tribune) and why this “compelling movie heroine” (RogerEbert.com) “deserves her place within the pantheon of labor leaders, civil rights activists, and feminists” (Slant).Buy tickets/get more info now
