Dolroes

6

Peter Bratt’s documentary sheds light on New Mexico’s Dolores Huerta, the enigmatic, intensely private founder of the United Farmer Workers, and most important activists in American history still missing from the history books. With unprecedented access, Bratt portrays a heroic and very human woman, whose tireless commitment to the marginalized led her to confront Teamsters on a picket line, and face baton-wielding policemen. Her fearlessness and vision, in partnership with Cesar Chavez, made the world a safer place for workers, particularly Latinos. (U.S., 2017, 95m)
