"DOLORES" film hits the Bay Area

[free] “DOLORES” Movie // San Jose

Raising 11 children while wrestling with gender bias, union defeat and victory, and nearly dying after a San Francisco Police beating, Dolores Huerta bucks 1950s gender conventions to co-found the country’s first farmworkers union.

See the film about Dolores Huerta. She is among the most important, yet least known, activists in American history. See the film that explains her influence, impact — and why you may have never heard her name before.

About

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.

Her career as an activist began alongside Cesar Chavez and, at age 87, Dolores Huerta continues to advocate for the common good.
