DOLORES

Dolores Huerta is among the most important, yet least known, activists in American history. As an equal partner in co-founding the first farm workers unions with Cesar Chavez,  she tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice becoming one of the most defiant feminists of the twentieth century—a fight she continues to this day, at 87 years old.  The film reveals the raw, personal stakes involved in committing one’s life to social change.
