con subtítulos en español

In the 1950's, a working-class wife and mother of eleven children helps to establish the first farmworker's union with Cesar Chavez, which later develops into a platform for feminism and gender equality.

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 of eleven, the film reveals the raw, personal stakes involved in committing one’s life to social change. (USA, 2017, 98 min., NR, English| Dir. Peter Bratt)
