Though the movement depended on Huerta's ability to forge ties and persuade doubters, and though she stood as its co-founder, she missed much of the recognition — most people remember only Chavez. Peter Bratt masterfully corrects the record, with the help of many of Huerta's 11 children, civil rights luminaries and ample footage revealing a charismatic, complicated woman who persevered — despite the disruption to her family and swirling disapproval of her personal life. Best of all, an 87-year-old Huerta is still here to describe her experiences, including how her understanding of civil rights eventually came to include feminism (not a wholly welcome development among some of her compatriots). The doc demonstrates how thoroughly Huerta embodies her ’60s-era rallying cry (that slogan borrowed by the 2008 Obama campaign): "Si se puede!" "Yes we can!" Bonus: Carlos Santana, an executive producer, contributes to the film's engaging soundtrack.
