Event description

Description

The Watsonville Film Festival will host the Monterey Bay premiere of the documentary film DOLORES, the evening will include a reception and a Q&A with special guests.

The film, directed by Peter Bratt, follows Dolores Huerta, one of the most important activists in American history. An equal partner in co-founding the first farm workers unions with César Chávez, her enormous contributions have gone largely unrecognized. Dolores tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice alongside Chávez, and later become one of the most defiant feminists of the twentieth century—and she continues the fight to this day, at 87.


Don't miss this very Special Event at the Springfield Grange in Watsonville, a community space that resembles the organizing halls of the '60s, taking us back to the roots of the UFW.

Dolores premiered at Sundance Film Festival, has received rave reviews, and will be released in movie theaters accross the US in September. This is a one-night only, regional premiere of the documentary, and is a fundraiser for the 2017 Watsonville Film Festival.

You also have the option to purchase "Farmworker Tickets." These gifted, sponsorship tickets will ensure that local campesinos and low-income youth can attend the event.

The Watsonville Film Festival takes pride in sparking powerful conversations and inspiring action in collaboration with numerous community organizations. Your contribution helps us continue our work.
