Movie Info

Dolores Huerta is among the most important, yet least known, activists in American history. 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. Directed by Peter Bratt.

Hagiographic but still lively and informative, this documentary by Peter Bratt shines a spotlight on a historic, relatively overlooked figure...

"Dolores" is a fascinating corrective to 50-plus years of American history. It's educational, to be sure, but also exhilarating, inspiring and deeply emotional.

September 14, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Her social activism often left her children, some of whom are interviewed, in the lurch. It's a contradiction the film could have more sharply explored.

September 8, 2017 | Rating: B | Full Review…

"Dolores" is a documentary that celebrates a hero, but it's no hagiography. Its subject wouldn't stand for that.

September 7, 2017 | Full Review…

Bratt and his collaborators clearly admire their subject, while recognizing that the struggles and some possible contradictions don't make her a weaker leader.

September 6, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Huerta is such a commanding figure, and the array of historical footage marshalled on behalf of her story is so impressive, that the film makes a strong impression.
