Major indie film festival Sundance has several Latin American and Latino films in the lineup. Here's a couple highlights:
This doc chronicles the life of activist Dolores Huerta as she bucks 1950s gender conventions by co-founding the country’s first farmworkers’ union. Wrestling with raising 11 children, gender bias, union defeat and victory, and nearly dying after a San Francisco Police beating, Dolores emerges with a vision that connects her newfound feminism with racial and class justice.
