History tells us that Cesar Chavez transformed the U.S. labor movement by leading the first farm workers’ union. But often missing from this narrative is his equally influential co-founder, Dolores Huerta, who fought tirelessly alongside Chavez for racial and labor justice and became one of the most defiant feminists of the 20th Century. The documentary, which debuted at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, has a historical approach, but also arrives decidedly of the moment as the nation debates issues of immigration, environment, labor and women’s rights.
