VIDEO: ACTIVIST DOLORES HUERTA & FILMMAKER PETER BRATT ON “DOLORES”

Activist Dolores Huerta is the subject of filmmaker Peter Bratt‘s new documentary Dolores. I caught up with them at the 2017 San Francisco International Film Festival to find out why it took so long to make a film on Huerta, who worked alongside Cesar Chaves on California’s farm workers movement. Huerta’s involvement goes back to the 1960s and she shares how she got involved and the influence of Gandhi and his non-violent philosophy on Chavez and herself.

Dolores releases Sept 1, 2017 in San Francisco Bay area. In early 2018 the film will air on PBS stations.
