Director: Peter Bratt

Film Summary

Cine Sin Fronteras | 1:35 | 2017 | USA | | View Website

Dolores Huerta is the most important activist in American history that you may have never heard of. An equal partner alongside Cesar Chavez in organizing the first farm workers unions (eventually becoming the UFW), Huerta fought ceaselessly to protect the rights of jornaleros, mujeres, and all whom those in power would seek to exploit. Even at the age of 87, she remains the stridently feminist, uncompromising firebrand. Combining archival footage with unprecedented intimate access, Dolores finally gives this titan of American activism the tribute she so richly deserves.
