Dolores: SFFILM Education Viewing Guide


POSTED BY: San Francisco Film Society

CREATED: Wednesday, April 05, 2017

Dolores is a documentary film about the life and work of legendary civil rights activist

Dolores Huerta. A class screening of the film may complement a US history, social studies

or ethnic studies curriculum. Taught in conjunction with this guide, the film will empower

students to think critically about the ongoing fight for equal rights for people of color and

women in the United States, and about the meaning of sustained activism, both personally

and politically. Discussion questions and supplemental materials facilitate further research

into related topics such as intersectional feminism, Chicano/Chicana cultural identity, and the

importance of recognizing the work of activists in the American cultural narrative.
