Dolores


Dolores

“You can’t make change, unless you’re willing to give something up” says Dolores Huerta, life-long organizer who co-founded the United Farm Workers with Cesar Chavez in the 1960s. This very engaging film brings an extraordinary woman - human rights activist who endured jail and beating, tough negotiator, mother – out of the shadows to a well-deserved place in the front line of history. Combining extensive and powerful archival material with interviews - including with the now 87 year old Dolores and some of her eleven children, Dolores is a wonderful celebration of a life of engagement while also exploring the price paid.
