Dolores
Directed by Peter Bratt

Saturday, January 20, 11 am

“Exuberantly inspiring... makes you want to march and dance.”—David Talbot, San Francisco Chronicle

History tells us Cesar Chavez transformed the U.S. labor movement by initiating the first farm workers’ union. But missing from this story is his equally influential co-founder, Dolores Huerta, who tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice alongside Chavez, becoming one of the most defiant feminists of the 20th century.

Like so many powerful female advocates, Dolores and her sweeping reforms were-and still are -largely overlooked. Even as she empowered a generation of immigrants to stand up for their rights, her own relentless work ethic was constantly under attack. False accusations from foes and friends alike pushed Dolores out of the very union she helped create. Still, she remains as steadfast in her fight as ever at the age of 87.

Peter Bratt’s provocative and energizing documentary challenges this incomplete, one-sided history and reveals the raw, personal stakes involved in committing one’s life to the fight for justice.

A selection of the Sundance Film Festival and produced by Carlos Santana. 2017, U.S., DCP, in English and Spanish with English subtitles, 98 minutes.

Co-presented with the ACLU-KY, Jefferson County Chapter of Kentuckians for the Commonwealth, Mijente Louisville and the UofL Cultural Center.
