Dolores is the story of Dolores Huerta, one of the most important activists in American history. Overshadowed by the legacy of Cesar Chavez and forced from the ranks of the all-male leadership of the United Farm Workers’ Union after his death, Huerta learns the painful truth—that in a male-dominated world, her gender is the greatest obstacle of all. Tracing her trajectory through the most radical social and cultural movements of the past half-century, from brown power and feminism to LGBTQ rights and environmental justice, Dolores provides an unflinching look at the barriers faced by women and people of color within the very communities they're fighting for.
With unprecedented access to both Huerta and her children, Dolores portrays a woman both heroic and flawed, working tirelessly for social change even as her eleven children longed to have her at home. “[An] energetic, engaging documentary.” —Variety
