Dolores Huerta bucks 1950s gender conventions by starting the country's first farm worker's union with fellow organizer Cesar Chavez. What starts out as a struggle for racial and labor justice, soon becomes a fight for gender equality within the same union she is eventually forced to leave. As she wrestles with raising 11 children, three marriages, and is nearly beaten to death by a San Francisco tactical police squad, Dolores emerges with a vision that connects her new found feminism with racial and class justice.

In the U.S., a lot of people don't seem to get that the movie itself is meant to be a documentary. This movie is actually a compilation of the many interviews that have been done over the years with the people who were involved in the making of this film. I was really impressed by how much they actually spoke about the film. This movie is actually not very violent, and it seems to be more of a documentary than a Hollywood movie. I highly recommend this documentary to everyone.

Although the subject is one of the most controversial and disturbing in American history, it is not about torture. This film shows that, at the time, the CIA was no more than a spy organization that could not really afford to "do the job" and had to pay it's bills by supplying the drug cartels and the terrorist organizations with the information they needed. When the movie ends, you will know that the CIA has been captured by the media and by the public. The CIA is nothing but an "organization" that existed to serve the interests of the CIA's sponsors, and the CIA has been trying to explain this to the American public for more than forty years. However, it is impossible to escape the conclusion that the movie was made to make the American public feel better about the CIA, and to get them to stop looking for the real story. This movie is, without a doubt, the most important documentary about the CIA ever made, and if it doesn't change the way you think about the CIA, you should go ahead and watch it anyway. This movie is a classic.

I enjoyed this film and found it to be a good look at the plight of the kidnapped girls. The three women in the movie all were strong and had their own voice, unlike the other women who were not. The use of a voice over is also very effective. The first woman, Dora was very open and honest, and very well acted. The second woman, Amanda, was very strong and did not appear to be acting, and seemed to be real. I thought her performance was very good. The third woman, Dora, did not do well with the script. I found her performance to be over the top. All in all, I would recommend this movie to those who like historical documentaries. This is a movie I would recommend to those who are interested in the history of the kidnapping of the three girls. I would not recommend it to those who are not interested in the history of the kidnapping.

I know that this movie is full of spoilers but I wanted to warn you. I feel that most of the people watching this movie are likely to have a very skewed view of the music industry, and of music in general. I don't know what happened to rock music in the 90's, but it seems like the music industry went into a panic mode and stopped making music and started making movies. It seems to me that a lot of people are going to be totally offended by this movie. This movie is not a biopic on the music industry. It is not a documentary on rock music. It is not a history lesson on the music industry. It is a biopic on two people who took a chance and decided to take a chance on a new way of doing music. They did not make money off of their music, they made money off of their friendship. The movie is not about any specific individual, it is about a new idea. If you are going to watch this movie, watch it with an open mind and not expecting too much. If you are looking for a movie to take your family to, this movie is not for you. I would not recommend this movie for anyone under the age of 14. I would recommend this movie to anyone who is interested in rock music, or music in general.

I have heard a lot of people who liked this film say that they did not like the film because they thought it was depressing. But that was not what I thought. I thought that the film was really uplifting and would have been a great film if it had not been for the depressing part. I thought that the message was uplifting and gave hope to the world. It seemed that the film had no wrong messages. It just made people look at what they did wrong in their life. I thought that the film was about a lot of things, but that it was about some things. Like how you treat your family, and how you treat your friends. It seemed that the film was about the negativity that we can put our family and friends through. I thought that it was uplifting, because I have seen people who have been in difficult situations go through tremendous changes in their lives. I thought that the message was powerful. It really made me want to see what I did wrong in my life.

I can't say I've ever been to a hippie meeting before, but I had the pleasure of seeing it this past weekend. I found the film to be very informative and educational. It definitely had me on the edge of my seat from start to finish. I believe this movie is so important because of the blatant disregard for human life. In the past, hippies would never have thought that they could destroy the world. But in the 70's, hippies realized the error of their ways and started to reclaim their family land. I believe this film should be released to the public. This film shows what a terrible mistake the hippies made. I don't know how many people are still alive that will watch this film and say to themselves, "Wow, that was a really bad thing that happened." The truth is, hippies, if you don't care about human life, don't watch this movie. If you do, you're not one of them.

I love this movie. In fact I'm going to watch it again and again, for months. I'm not a fan of Mary Steenburgen, but I love this movie. It's a true story, and it's about what happened to Mary when she went to the hospital after being raped. It's not a perfect movie, but I think it's very close to the truth. I can't tell you more, but I really love this movie, and I think everyone should watch it. I think that everyone who watches it should feel that it's something very special. And it's true, I do feel very special, watching this movie. Thank you for watching my movie.

I don't think that anyone can deny the fact that the tragic story of Dolores Huerta is a tragic one. However, this film just doesn't portray the tragedy of Dolores as well as she deserves. Her life was a constant struggle for survival in a harsh environment. Even though she was granted political asylum in the United States, she still suffered from the abuse she faced back in Mexico. The film does a great job showing Dolores's experience as a child, her relationship with her father, and her parents' struggle with the harsh environment they lived in. However, it does a poor job of explaining her childhood and how she overcame it. The film just leaves out a lot of important information. The film portrays Dolores as a stupid young girl, which is incorrect. In fact, most of the time she seems to have an IQ of 90 or more. I think the film could have shown Dolores in a better light if they had used a better narrator. The director of the film did a very poor job of explaining how Dolores came to be. The film just does not show her as a "poor" little girl. She was a bright girl with a very bright future. There were a lot of people who gave Dolores the nickname "Little Rock" because of the violent crime and abuse she had to face in her childhood. However, the real Dolores Huerta was a pretty tough person. I think the film would have been much better if they showed Dolores as a strong woman who overcame her experiences, not a dumb, violent little girl.

This documentary chronicles the lives of four of the most famous women in American history. At the time of her assassination, Elizabeth Taylor was considered the most beautiful woman in the world. From the start of her film, it is very clear that the overwhelming emotional response to this subject is overwhelmingly positive. The filmmaker, Tina Ip, captures her subjects' emotions in such a way that the viewer feels as though they have been watching a documentary. This film is full of personal moments that are uplifting, bittersweet and sad. I have seen a lot of documentary films that focus on the subject of women in the workplace. This is an excellent film that can be enjoyed by all genders. It is a great story of a woman who changed the world. She was only a few years older than her husband at the time of her assassination. When asked to write her life story, she wrote the story of her life and her love for him. It is an excellent film. The audience will enjoy the emotional aspects of the film and the personal moments. They will not feel like they are watching a film. This is a great film.

This movie will give you a great insight to the life of a woman who fought her way to the top of the political world. As she told her story, we learn about her life in a very interesting way. The only problem is that the movie is very long. It is a 2h 45min long movie, so if you are a huge fan of hers, you might feel a bit overwhelmed. Nevertheless, I highly recommend this movie to any one who loves documentaries.

As a young woman in the 1930s, Dolores Huerta was the first Mexican woman to be a journalist. She was also the first woman to interview a Spanish hero of the Mexican Revolution, Manuel Noriega. She was also the first woman to be a member of the U.S. Congress. Her diary and newspaper articles became so influential that a National Medal of Freedom was awarded to her. Her son and daughter-in-law have become prominent national figures in Mexican politics. The film is a documentary on Huerta's life, her career and her relationship with her husband. She is interviewed by the author of the documentary and then goes on a journey of her own, visiting the sites of her childhood and meeting those who knew her best. The film includes some long interviews with her husband, her son and other relatives. Dolores Huerta's contribution to Mexican history is so significant that many people in the country and in the United States are looking for her to be honored with the Presidential Medal of Freedom. The documentary is well done, but it is not a very interesting film. There is nothing in the way of original reporting. The movie is mostly a biography, and the actual interviewees are mostly not very interesting. There are some interesting photographs and there are many interesting moments, but the documentary is not very interesting.

This documentary follows the life of "The Dolores Huerta Story", the woman who became the symbol of the struggle for equal rights for women in the United States, when she was forced to leave her home and take a job with the Mexican army to help support her mother, who died shortly after her arrival. It was then that she learned that her father was a part of the Underground Railroad, a group of African Americans who were smuggled into the US to escape the violence and oppression of the Jim Crow south, and the rise of segregation. Dolores has taken the story of this important issue and made it more accessible, through both interviews and her own life, as she explains how her father was a part of the Underground Railroad, and how his family supported her throughout her childhood, and how her own mother supported her through her teenage years. It is then that we see how her story is being made into a national story, and how her daughter, now a Senator, is the main protagonist of the story. The documentary also tells how her own life was changed by her experiences in the military, and how she has been inspired to change the way she lives her life, and to be an advocate for the rights of women. In addition to Dolores, this documentary also features interviews with several other women who were forced to leave their homes because of their sexuality. The women interviewed were primarily women of color, and in the end, were able to gain the same respect as Dolores. The documentary also contains interviews with several different political leaders, such as Benito Juarez, a former president of Mexico, who was a prisoner of war in the US during the war in Vietnam, and helped Dolores secure her freedom. Also in the documentary, we are given the chance to see the Underground Railroad as a real life, and how Dolores herself experienced the hardships of her time in the US. This documentary is an important step towards changing the way the United States views the treatment of women, and how the oppression of women is being addressed in a way that is both compassionate and uplifting. This documentary has given women in the United States a voice to be heard, and has made it easier for the women of the country to come out to their families about their experiences, and has opened the door to the rest of the world to learn about the Underground Railroad, and to realize the pain and struggle women have to go through, and to be aware of the oppression that they face. The documentary is an important documentary that I believe will inspire many women to see that women are human beings, just like men, and that women have their own struggles, just like the men. This documentary is a must see for all women. 8/10.

This documentary, about the life and times of actress Dolores Huerta, is well-made, though a little too long at approximately two hours. It has a good amount of fact and truth to it, and is a really good look at a woman that some people might never have heard of. This film is a lot like a documentary in a way, but it does have a certain appeal to it. I felt that the film was interesting, and I enjoyed seeing Dolores on screen for the first time in a long time. I was also glad to see that the film did a good job of showing her struggle with drug addiction, as well as the social stigma that surrounded her. It also shows how her life was changed for the worse when her husband, Oscar Lopez, was murdered in a plane crash, and that she became an outspoken advocate for civil rights. Overall, this film was really good. Dolores was a very interesting person, and I think she was an important figure in the history of the Mexican-American community, but I think that she was unfairly marginalized by the media. She was a great actress, and it was nice to see her back on screen in a way that shows the hard work and dedication that she had to go through to get where she is today. I thought that this was a really good documentary, and I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in Dolores Huerta.

So many people will tell you how much they love and adore this film. But I thought it was a pretty good documentary on the subject of "The Last Days of 'The Dolores Claiborne' and the "Last Lady of San Francisco". Well, I agree with them. I thought the movie was well made, with lots of interesting interviews with the actors and actresses involved in the movie. They were very engaging, and all of the interviews were very interesting. I think it was well done, and I think it was interesting to see what happens when the fame and the glamour fades away from the world of film. I think the movie had a fair amount of emotion, and was good at bringing out the truth about the subject. I thought that the film was also well done in the look and feel of the film. The "Last Days of 'The Dolores Claiborne'" was not only a "Film Noir" style movie, it was very atmospheric and quite beautiful. I thought that the music was also very good, and added to the feel of the movie. I thought that the film was very entertaining, and was entertaining in the way that I think the movie could have been. I thought that it was very well done, and I thought it was a good movie. 8/10

An excellent documentary about the consequences of the government's war on drugs. It goes back and forth from 1970s to the present day. The film takes a very realistic approach in showing the war on drugs as a front for the US government to use it's influence and power to keep the government's policies of the time in place. It also looks at the life of the young girls who were often sent to the drug fields to sell their bodies to johns. It looks at the criminalization of drugs in the US and the efforts to get people to stop using drugs. There are many interesting points of view. The filmmaker interviews many of the people who are the ones who have gone through the drug war in the 70s and 80s. The people interviewed are all extremely different in the ways they view the drug war. The director also looks at the effects of the war on the people who have been affected by it. It is a great documentary that should be viewed by anyone.

I had the good fortune to attend the world premiere of Dolores Claiborne at the Tribeca Film Festival. This film, based on the real-life experiences of Dolores Claiborne, a pioneering African American woman who went to jail for civil disobedience, is extremely well made, with compelling interviews with Dolores, and also with key players in the film. I thought the movie was accurate in many respects, including the depiction of the prison and the justice system, which is still somewhat inaccurate in many respects. The film is highly recommended to anyone interested in the history of the Civil Rights Movement, particularly in the South, for it is highly accurate in the portrayal of both the problems and the solutions.

I really enjoyed this documentary. It was very well done and gave a real look at the "true" stories of people. I feel that most of the interviewees were very credible and were open about their beliefs and experiences. The director did a great job and I was impressed with the accuracy of the information she had. I would definitely recommend this documentary to anyone interested in learning about true stories. I felt that the director did a great job of giving the viewer a real view of how people react to the problems of the world. I also enjoyed the music used in this documentary. It was very appropriate and appropriate for the themes of the documentary. I also enjoyed that this documentary was very easy to understand. I really liked the balance between the positive and negative stories. I also liked that the director was very candid about what she had learned from her interviews. Overall, I highly recommend this documentary.

I've been to a lot of slasher films over the years and this is probably my favorite. The format of the film is a bit outdated, but it's still very interesting. It's always fun to see how slasher movies evolve as time goes on. One thing that I didn't really like about this movie was the music. Some of it is really good, but it's mostly just annoying. I would have liked to see some better music from the original soundtrack. I think the soundtrack is awesome and it's always good to hear some old classics. This is the first movie that I've ever reviewed and it's still very good. I was pleasantly surprised and I'm glad that I watched it. I really liked it. 8/10

This movie is about one of the most beautiful places on earth. It was shot on location in San Francisco, which is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. What it is not about is how beautiful it is. In the movie, the viewers are shown many different views of the city and all of them are beautiful. In addition, the images are shot in natural light. The movie is great, not only because it is a documentary, but because it is a beautiful film. The director uses several tricks that are very subtle, but nevertheless very important. The most important is to use the camera without moving. I can't say that I'm used to the technique, but I thought it was very effective. I think that if you look carefully, you can notice many other subtle tricks. In addition, the director has chosen to show the city from a different angle, for example, at night, in the sun, by using different colors. I would recommend this film to anyone who loves to see different views of San Francisco. The director has also chosen to show the city at night, which I think is one of the most important things in the film. But the best part of this film is that it is a documentary about the story of the Dolores Del Mar and not about the city itself.

I have not seen the original film, but the story is set in the 1930's. The story is not original, but it is entertaining. The young girl Dolores is a very inspirational story. She goes against the status quo, and shows a desire to do what is right. The situation in Mexico is very different than in the US, and the world is changing. It is clear that the government is corrupt and does not provide a solution to the problem. This movie shows a country that is not ready for a revolution, and is ready for the movement that is needed to get it done. It also shows the negative impact that the revolution has on the people in Mexico. The movie is a must see, and it will be remembered for many years to come.

I saw this documentary at the 2009 TIFF film festival and loved it. The director is really great at making you feel like you are on the edge of your seat during the whole documentary. This is what we need more of in documentary films. Documentaries are not for the audience, they are for the filmmaker. The director shows how the story unfolds in a very honest manner, showing the kind of control and control that director's have over their subject matter. And how you have to take your time to watch a documentary, because once you have seen a documentary, you just don't want to see a new one. One of the most important things that I've learned from this documentary is to never judge a book by its cover. This movie is really good, I recommend it to all of my friends. It's very informative, and the movie does a good job at explaining how directors and storytellers think. I definitely recommend it to all.
