LARB Radio Hour: Dolores Huerta and Peter Bratt, La Lucha Continua at 87; Plus, David Plante’s “Difficult Women”
By LARB AV – September 15, 2017
Director Peter Bratt and Dolores Huerta, the subject of his new documentary Dolores, talk with co-hosts Eric Newman and Medaya Ocher about the making of the film. But in the hands of Dolores Huerta, every moment is an organizing moment — the conversation flows across the central political issues of our time, much as the film tackles those from the past half-century and beyond. The message remains the same: everyone can take action to improve our lives and society, here’s how you do it. Also, Medaya recommends New York Review Books’ re-issue of David Plante’s classic (and controversial) Difficult Women: A Memoir of Three, which contains literary portraits of Jean Rhys, Sonia Orwell, and Germaine Greer.
