Dolores Huerta is among the most important, yet least known, activists in American history. An equal partner in co-founding the first US farm workers’ union with Cesar Chavez, her enormous contributions have gone largely unrecognized. Dolores tirelessly led the fight for racial and labour justice alongside Chavez, becoming one of the most defiant feminists of the twentieth century. At 87, she continues the fight to this day. 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.  “exuberantly inspiring… makes you want to march and dance.” San Francisco Chronicle
