What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Dolores is a documentary that explores a largely untold chapter in American history: The struggle for migrant farm workers' rights. It centers on Dolores Huerta, the woman who was at the epicenter of those battles for years. There's wince-inducing archival footage of police violence against unarmed protesters, as well as extensive discussions of racism, sexism, and economic warfare. Huerta's unconventional family choices are scrutinized (she had 11 children by several men, a fact her opponents used against her). In tackling these issues, the film presents a fully formed, humanistic portrait of an important figure in recent American history. Huerta has been all but omitted from most history books, but her dogged determination and tireless activism have led to major gains, as recognized by a string of U.S. presidents (she is the recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom).
