Earth Week Mini Festival Welcomes Legendary Activist Dolores Huerta
OneEarth Film Festival, in partnership with the city of Chicago, will host its annual Earth Week Mini Fest from April 19 through 25, featuring seven outstanding feature-length films, including Dolores, and 14 shorts that shine a light on the most important issues of our time. Dolores Huerta will conduct a post-film Q&A after the reprise screening on Earth Day, April 22, at 6:30 p.m.
This film was one of the most popular of One Earth’s 2018 season, and its themes and lessons are more relevant today than ever: immigrant rights, environmental justice, sustainable agriculture and the grit and determination of female leaders in the environmental movement.
Huerta co-founded the first farm workers unions with Cesar Chavez, and has tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice alongside Chavez, becoming one of the most courageous feminists of the 20th century.
Other Earth Week festival feature-length screenings include: I Am Greta: A Force of Nature, The Condor and The Eagle, Closing the Loop: A Documentary About the Circular Economy Revolution, Mossville: When Great Trees Fall, To Which We Belong, and The Great Green Wall.
All events are virtual and free (donations are appreciated). For tickets, visit OneEarthFilmFest.org.
