Film Presented for Free to Community Members in Partnership with PBS & Kean University
(UNION) – Assemblywoman Annette Quijano invites the public to join her as she hosts a special one-day film screening of “Dolores.”
The film screening, which is in partnership with PBS and Kean University, will take place on Tuesday, Dec. 12 at 6 p.m. in the STEM Auditorium at Kean University in Union Township.
“Dolores” is a documentary based on the life of Dolores Huerta, one of the most influential activists in American history. It previously screened at the Sundance Film Festival, and won awards at both the San Francisco International Film Festival and the Seattle International Film Festival. This is the first-time “Dolores” will be shown in Union County.
The film explores Huerta’s life and contributions to social justice, including her largely unrecognized role in co-founding the first farm workers unions with Cesar Chavez. Tirelessly fighting for racial and labor justice, she became one of the most defiant feminists of the 20th century – and continues the fight to this day at age 87.
With intimate and unprecedented access to the intensely private mother of eleven children, the film reveals the raw, personal stakes involved in committing one’s life to social change.
Seating is limited. Reservations are required and can be made at http://www.kean.edu/dolores.
