Dolores (NR)

Peter Bratt’s documentary "Dolores” gives equal focus on some lesser-known battles, as the living legend stood up to patriarchy, even within the UFW group she co-founded. Like Cesar Chavez, she was a hero to the labor movement. But because she is a woman, there was an amplified cost.

The locally sourced documentary is always engaging — lively and well-paced with an impressive list of interviewees from Hillary Clinton to Huerta herself. But the film soars when it shows the cost of the activist’s dedication, exacerbated by what now can be clearly seen as thick-skulled men. "Dolores” makes a fitting companion to the Chavez-focused 1997 PBS documentary "The Fight in the Fields.” It also makes a fine double feature with "Wonder Woman.”
