Community Harvest Kingston is pleased to present two documentary films at The Screening Room, Sunday, April 8th, 4 pm. The Wyoming PBS short, "Goats Eat Weeds" (2017) features two family-owned goat operations which illustrate that properly-managed goats are an environmentally safe means of controlling invasive plants while improving the overall quality of the land. "Dolores", the 2017 award-winning feature-length documentary, tells the story of Dolores Huerta, a working class mother who bucked 1950s gender conventions to cofound the first farm workers' unions with Cesare Chavez. Raising 11 children while wrestling with gender bias, racism, the ups and downs of union organizing, and nearly dying after a San Francisco Police beating, Peter Bratt's documentary argues that sexism, which affects every area of history across the political spectrum, denied Dolores the fame she so clearly deserves.
Community Harvest Kingston will gratefully receive donations at the door. All proceeds go towards supporting CHK programming
