Dolores - Movie Screening
- Category: Film Screenings
The Artes de la Rosa Board Directors and its Committee Members are honored to welcome and announce Dolores Huerta to premiere her documentary autobiography of her life advocating for the rights of others at the Historic Rose Marine Theater in the Northside Area of Fort Worth, on Thursday, October 12, 2017. A VIP Reception with a Meet & Greet will be hosted in the honor of Dolores Huerta-- for Sponsors and VIP Guests.
Dolores Huerta is among the most important, yet least known, activists in American history. An equal partner in co-founding the first farm workers unions with Cesar Chavez, her enormous contributions have gone largely unrecognized. Dolores tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice alongside Chavez, becoming one of the most defiant feminists of the twentieth century—and she continues the fight to this day, at 87. With intimate and unprecedented access to this intensely private mother to eleven, the film reveals the raw, personal stakes involved in committing one’s life to social change. Directed by Peter Bratt.
Rose Herrera a close friend of Dolores Huerta was excited to share her heart felt thoughts about Ms. Huerta, she quoted “It is my honor to state the Dolores Huerta documentary will give a unique glimpse and understanding into the struggle and history of the Chicano movement. Some will relive history, and others will see and hear our history as they have never heard it before. It’s not often we have an opportunity to meet and hear from the legends in our culture. Therefore, I urge everyone, not to miss the chance of opportunity to meet the woman who has continued to be an integral part of the Chicano Movement and the United Farmworkers Union”.
