Dolores

Rated NR 96 minutes 2017

Documentary tribute to veteran labor leader and civil rights pioneer Dolores Huerta makes a convincing case that she was just as important to the cause of agricultural laborers as her celebrated colleague, the late Cesar Chavez — despite Huerta’s conspicuous lack of official recognition. As laid out by filmmaker Peter Bratt (La Mission), Huerta did everything Chavez did, except she did it as a woman in a male-dominated movement. A few of her talking-head admirers: playwright Luis Valdez, journalist Gloria Steinem, activist Angela Davis, numerous politicians and union allies, and some of her 11 children. The more we learn about Huerta, the more we believe in her and her seemingly never-ending struggle “to be accepted for what I am.” (96 min., 2017, not rated)
