Indie Lens Pop-Up Presents: Dolores

Indie Lens Pop-Up Presents: Dolores

Mon, 03/26/2018 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm

With intimate and unprecedented access, Peter Bratt's Dolores tells the story of Dolores Huerta, among the most important, yet least-known, activists in American history.

As part of the Indie Lens Pop-Up Series WXXI is pleased to present a FREE screening of Dolores on Monday, March 26, 2018 at 7 p.m. at the Little Theatre. It will be followed by a panel discussion. Panelist TBA.

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.
