Dolores (2017) Rated NR

A documentary that focuses on Dolores Huerta, who was a wife and mother that helped start the farmer’s union in the 1950s. Starring Dolores Huerta, Martin Luther King, and Luis Valdez.

Dolores, along with Cesar Chavez, is a co-founder of the United Farmworkers Union. The film interviews those who surrounded Huerta and Chavez as well as Huerta’s eleven children. The documentary also gives a look at the life she led and the family’s sacrifices because of her activism. What frustrates me about this film is that it is very one-sided. There are no interviews with Chavez’s side. There were a few interviews of people who talked about Huerta’s dislike of the Republican party. It mostly talks about how wonderful she was and leaves out the negative or other side of the events. Even with the negative aspects of this documentary, it is still interesting to watch her story making it worth it.
